Contemporary & Lyrical Classes

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Lyrical dance focuses on the expression of emotion and is inspired by the lyrics of the music to which it is performed. 

We offer several classes in this very popular genre of dance, listed here by age group:

Lyrical Ballet ages 8-10

This combination class couples learning the technique of classical ballet with the technique and stylings of lyrical. This class spends thirty minutes with ballet and thirty minutes with lyrical. This class is a beautiful blend of the two styles that will give dancers a broader experience and opportunity to explore both ballet and lyrical dance. Ballet shoes are required.
