When you dance your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor.
It’s to enjoy each step along the way

Lyrical/ Contemporary

Lyrical is a softer style of Dance focusing on the emotion behind movement and expression through dance. It is danced to ballads and slower songs with a focus on the expression of the body and face while executing movements with proper Jazz/ Ballet technique.

Contemporary is a more abstract and artistic dance style often compared with lyrical although not always relating to an emotion or story but more to a theme or topic. This style requires Jazz and Ballet technique, though it steps outside the box of other styles and steps into a more abstract, artistic world. Students are required to wear beige 3-quarter length tights and bare feet or foot undies. Boys must wear black dance pants and a white shirt.
