Lyrical dance is the art of communicating the story of a song or “lyrics” through movement. This type of story telling can be literal or abstract, so the dancers are stretched to utilize their ballet based technical skills in conjunction with presentation and performance. Lyrical often employs down- tempo or slower music where the dancer uses controlled and sustained movement styles. Dancers will explore new ways of moving in combinations, floor work, and also in various methods of improvisation.
