Lyrical/Contemporary

Lyrical dance is centered around the classical technique but gives more freedom to the dancer through flow of the upper body.

Contemporary dance is a unique and interpretive form of dance that challenges the dancers centre of gravity and will improve their strength and power.

As there is a large reliance on classical technique for these styles all students enrolled in Lyrical/Contemporary classes must also attend at least one Classical Ballet class per week.
