Young dancers will start to learn how to tell a story through movement. Lyrical is more of a freestyle, interpretive technique combining the techniques of ballet and jazz. Not as regimented and constrictive as a ballet class but a very disciplined technique.This beautiful, expressive style if often performed to slower, gentler music. It is called “Lyrical” because its movements are meant to tell audiences a story through dance. The form combines ballet techniques with the jazz and modern styles influencing the movements. An emotionally driven dance form, “Lyrical” depends greatly on the passion and interpretation of the performer, and not just the movements themselves.
