Lyrical and Contemporary

We offer Lyrical for Ballet students levels 2/3 through 4 and Contemporary to Ballet students level 5 & 6.
Lyrical and Contemporary are such styles that have not strayed far from the timeless beauty of ballet. Lyrical keeps the grace, poise, and elegance of ballet and connects the steps into a more fluent free flowing form. Contemporary has grown to be one of the most popular dance genres in the past 10 years. The mixture between lines and abstract contractions allows it to be one of the most versatile and stylistic types of dance. Contemporary cannot be performed at excellence without a good foundation in ballet technique. From this strong basis contemporary flows with more freedom in interpretation, music, costuming, and movement than ballet. This is why we require ballet classes must be taken injunction with lyrical and contemporary classes.
