Lyrical/Contemporary dance combines elements from ballet, modern and jazz techniques. Lyrical is often set to pop music with vocals and the choreography tells a story to imitate the lyrics of the music where Contemporary may be performed to classical songs without words. Lyrical & Contemporary dance combine gestures, facial expressions, emotions and drama with technique that is less conventional than ballet. Since this class focuses primarily on choreography, it is recommended for more experienced dancers who have trained in traditional ballet and jazz first. Lyrical at Allegro is offered to dancers ages 8+ that are also enrolled in ballet or jazz.
