Kids Lyrical & Contemporary

Welcome to our Lyrical and Contemporary Kids Dance Class! Our class is designed to introduce children to the beauty of lyrical dance while also providing a fun and safe environment to explore their creativity and self-expression.

Lyrical and contemporary dance is a blend of ballet and jazz techniques with a focus on interpreting the emotions and lyrics of a song through movement. We will then learn the basics of lyrical dance techniques, including proper posture, alignment, and fluid movements.
