Jazz/Lyrical (7-12 yr olds)

Jazz dance uses technique from ballet with the addition of upbeat movement and quick choreography meant to engage and excite audience and performers alike. Dancers find the best of both worlds as they find the feeling behind the music and express the emotions of the song through movement. Lyrical dance combines the technique of ballet with the mobility and expression of jazz and modern dance with an emphasis on fluidity and grace. Dancers will learn to express themselves as artists while dancing to popular contemporary music.
