Modern & Lyrical Dance Classes

This class offers a strong emphasis in classical ballet while exploring the fluidity of lyrical dance. Lyrical dance combines the technical elements of ballet with the freedom and airier aspects of jazz and contemporary dance. The curriculum focuses on proper skeletal alignment, posture, strength, extension of the legs and feet, fluid arm carriage, flexibility, and musicality.
