Lyrical dance is a modern dance form, which fuses modern dance, jazz and ballet. Lyrical dance is often referred to as contemporary dance. It requires ballet technique to perform, as the moves are often lyrical and precise. Moreover, the dancer must be well aware of facial expressions, essentially acting, to properly perform a lyrical dance piece. Lyrical dance is an evolving form. The goal of the lyrical dancer is to convey the emotion of a song’s lyrics through dance. Lyrical dance emphasizes emotional expression of the body necessary to tell a story that evolves along the lines of the song. It is a beautiful performing art form with much freedom of expression. I am encouraging all of my ballet and jazz dancers from age 12 and up, to try this beautiful, inspiring class.
