LYRICAL

Lyrical dance, a recent style addition in the dance world, fuses Ballet & Jazz techniques and is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements and express strong emotions from the lyrics in any chosen song.

CONTEMPORARY

Contemporary dance, in terms of the focus of technique, tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of Ballet, while also incorporating contract-release, fall and recovery and improvisation characteristics of Modern dance. 

JAZZ/LYRICAL & CONTEMPORARY
