Class Information

  Lyrical Praise/ ages 10+

Ages 10+. By special request this new class has been added to our line up! Students will be challenged in both choreography and emotional expression through movement and dance. “Lyrical” is a style of dance created from the fusion of ballet, jazz and contemporary dance techniques. Lyrical dance is performed to music with lyrics to inspire and express strong emotions in the chosen song. Music choices will include Christian themed songs. 3+ years of prior ballet or jazz experience is required for this class. Students will need a solid black leotard with stretch capris/leggings and NUDE slip on jazz shoes. Bring a water bottle. Material fee is for recital costume and covers the entire year. PLEASE NOTE: This class is a ONE year (fall and winter semester) long commitment. There will only be ONE recital and the end of the WINTER semester in May 2017. Dancers must be age 10 by the end of September.
