pic-lyricalLyrical dance has no specific history. It is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance techniques. Lyrical dance gained its name not because of the lyrics of the song but because of the meaning of the word lyrical: having a poetic, expressive quality. Lyrical dance interprets music or words. A routine based around feeling and emotion and, though technique is crucial, spirit generally tells where the dance will go. The class includes a warm up, high jumps, soft flowing turns and choreography with a very expressive, organic, dramatic feel.
