Lyrical 

Lyrical is a modern form of ballet mixed with a little bit of Jazz. Lyrical dances are danced to songs that make you feel something, therefore being the name lyrical since you listen to the lyrics.

THEN for those students who are staying for the last 15 minutes, we will focus on more difficult rhythms and combinations, as well as slightly faster footwork.

Modern Dance

Modern is an expressive style of dancing started in the early 20th century as a reaction to classical ballet. In recent years it has included elements not usually associated with dance such as speech and film. It is a dance form that allows the students to learn how to dance, but in a form that is less structured than ballet.


Jazz/ Hip Hop*

This class will focus on Jazz and Hip Hop separately and students will perform two routines during the recital. *An additional costume fee will be added to the final costume payment for the second costume.

This class will teach the basics of hip hop, such as popping and locking, tutting, and floor work. The focus will be on having clean movements while the students have fun and are able to express themselves.
