At Studios On Main, we offer an immersive Contemporary/Lyrical dance class that is both emotive and versatile. A unique blend of various dance forms, this genre is not confined to specific rules or techniques but instead draws upon the strengths of modern dance, ballet, and jazz.
Drawing on the spontaneity and improvisation of modern dance, students are encouraged to explore dynamic footwork, floor work, and original movements. The precision and grace inherent in ballet form a crucial backbone of the curriculum, providing a fundamental structure upon which students can build and expand. Additionally, the incorporation of jazz influences adds a lively energy and rhythmic diversity to the classes.
One of the most beautiful aspects of contemporary/lyrical dance is its connection with music and lyrics. In our classes, students will not only learn to move gracefully but also to interpret and express the feelings and stories encapsulated within a song. Each routine is not just a dance, but a personal expression of narrative and emotion.
Another key component is the emphasis on personal interpretation. Contemporary/lyrical dance thrives on individual creativity, and our classes are designed to foster this exploration of movement. Students are encouraged to create a dance style unique to themselves, making each performance one of a kind.
To ensure that all students possess a solid foundation, it is a requirement for anyone enrolling in the Contemporary/Lyrical Dance class to be registered and actively attending a current ballet class.
Join us and experience the rich blend of dance styles in our Contemporary/Lyrical Dance class, where movement and emotion unite to create truly expressive performances.
