We have explored lyrical dance in some of our kids and teens classes and the style has proved to be so popular that we are now opening bespoke Lyrical classes. Our classes combine strong ballet and jazz techniques and teach young dancers to use movement to express strong emotions. Movements in lyrical dance are characterised by fluidity and grace with the dancer flowing seamlessly from one move to another. These classes will truly make students feel like they are bringing the music to life as they dance.
