CONTEMPORARY, IMPROVISATION & LYRICAL
Lyrical and Contemporary dance are popular dance forms combining aspects of modern, jazz, and ballet. The movement qualities are fluid and often abstract. Lyrical dance utilizes the lyrics of the movements to influence the choreography.
Our contemporary classes will explore partnering and weight sharing exercises, as well as improvisation techniques. Technical exercises will condition the body for strength and flexibility, and will encourage individual artistry and expressiveness. Improvisational exercises will be utilized to bring out each dancers' compositional and artistic abilities.
Class placements are based on prior experience and technique. A background of ballet or jazz technique is required for placement in advanced contemporary classes.
