Contemporary / Lyrical

Contemporary/Lyrical is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz and classical ballet --varying from smooth and graceful movement, to sharp and athletic movement.  Focusing on core strength and creativity our Contemporary/Lyrical program strives to teach dancers to connect the mind and body through fluid dance movements, versatility and improvisation. Pioneers of this style of dance include Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. All believed that dancers should have freedom of movement, allowing their bodies to express their innermost feelings.

Dress Code: Black Leotard, Tan Tights, Black Shorts or Pants, No loose fitting T-shirts, or sweatshirts may be worn. A tight fitting black shirt may be worn over a black leotard. Hair should be secured firmly in place for all classes. Dance is a disciplined art form and rules are part of that discipline and have to be followed.
