Lyrical Jazz

Lyrical is a continuous, gentle and flowing dance form that blends technical movements smoothly from one step to the next. Lyrical interprets a story to slower paced music tempos and expresses deep personal emotions and inspires our souls. It helps to connect and ground us to our humanity by witnessing body sensations and feelings. Gesture, pantomime, improvisation and other acting elements are layered on the movement to enhance the interpretation of the dance.

The Academy offers classes for 12 year olds to Pre-Professional level, taught by our talented faculty.

Enjoy the beauty of Lyrical! It is highly recommended to dancers of all styles, as it allows you to free yourself from restricted movement and to inspire ones mind and soul!
