Lyrical – Lyrical dance is a style that embodies various aspects of ballet, jazz, acrobatics, and modern dance. It is meant to showcase the emotional spirit of the music through the body of the dancer. Use techniques from all dance styles to assist in telling the story of the lyrics through expressive movement and performance.
Musical Theatre – This dance style portrays an idea, theme or character. Inspiration may be taken from a musical stage production, movie or television production. Musical theatre class explores dance styles that would be used for Broadway musicals. In dance we experiment with acting out emotions, storytelling, and dramatics while performing strong dance moves.
