Lyrical Dance Class is a form of dance that branches from ballet. The music in these classes often tells a story, and the movement corresponds. Lyrical dance is a very expressive form of dance. At Ballet Elite Dance Studio we start our younger dancers in this style, as it is a good introduction and transition to contemporary dance. To make the transition as smooth as possible, lyrical dance works mainly in the turned out position and follows many of the same rules as ballet. In this class, dancers will learn to be more expressive in their movement and performance. They will tap into the ability to tell a story and evoke emotion from the audience. Students will be challenged to different progressions weekly that include leaps, turns, and transition steps. Improvisational skills are introduced as well. Our weekly Lyrical classes are offered for ages 5-12.
