In this class you will be learning lyrical dance as well as being challenged in both your dance technique and expression. Lyrical dancing combines jazz and ballet techniques with a heavy focus on dancing to the lyrics of a song and the emotions behind them. This class will help you become a stronger dancer by giving you more dance experience as well as strengthening your ability to learn choreography by learning new combinations each week. The goal of this class is to challenge you while at the same time having loads of fun!
