What is Lyrical Dance?

Lyrical dance is a style that incorporates ballet and jazz into a unique genre. Lyrical dancing uses movement to express emotions such as love, anger, joy, and sadness.

Lyrical dance moves range from graceful, fluid, free-flowing moments to powerful leaps and quick turns that can be explosive depending on the music being used.  In addition, the choreography of lyrical dancing is designed to accompany songs with lyrics, and dance movements portray the story that the lyrics are telling.  As a result there are many forms of Lyrical dancing.
