Lyrical Dance Classes
Combining ballet and jazz dance, Lyrical dance is a style of dance that uses music with lyrics to inspire the dancers movements. The style places importance on the portrayal of strong emotions with a more individual approach when compared to other styles of dance. Choreographers use lyrics from a song to inspire the dance with the dancer’s movements being used to portray the song’s emotion and story.
When compared to jazz dance or ballet, Lyrical tends to be less demanding with a focus on individual style rather than exact dance moves making the style much more accessible to people of varying ages and dance ability.
The Next Step Performing Arts prides itself on delivering performing arts training at the highest level. Our students will be pleased to know that’s no different for our lyrical dance classes.
