We offer half hour and forty-five minute lyrical classes. Our lyrical classes consist of 7 to 13 years old, and ages 14 and up. Lyrical/Contemporary dance has become one of the most popular styles of dance in recent years, mainly because of shows like “So You Think You Can Dance”. Lyrical dance is very similar to ballet, combining the many technical elements of classical ballet with the freedom, fluidity, expressiveness and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern dance. We are excited to offer this style to our students. We have instructors who have study lyrical/contemporary for many years.
