LYRICAL / CONTEMPORARY

These classes explore both Modern Dance styles, Lyrical & Contemporary.

Lyrical has its foundations in classical ballet, combining the many technical elements of classical ballet with the freedom and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern dance. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement.

Contemporary  tends to combine strong controlled form, shapes and lines with aspects of classical ballet techniques. It also employs specifically modern dance techniques such as contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation. Original and innovative explorations of time, space and dynamics, changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well. Contemporary Dance often (but not always) communicates an idea or intention, giving the audience a glimpse into a purpose or meaning, story or idea being told through the movement and dancers relationships with the space and with each other.
