Lyrical dance classes
Students of Alton Street Dance Studio in Arlington MA may attend a Lyrical dance class.
Lyrical dance is graceful style of dance that uses a less structured form of ballet where the lyrics of the music are used to tell a story. Because lyrical dancing focuses on the expression of strong emotion, the style concentrates more on individual approach and expressiveness than the precision of the dancer’s movements.
Lyrical dancing is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements to express strong feelings and emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics in the chosen song. Because of this, there is not as much focus on the choreography, and, in fact, the choreography often exists only as a general guide for the dancer, not as a routine that has to be exactly followed.
Lyrical dance classes will work on things like balancés, leaps, turns, fan kicks, saut de basques etc. alongside with the emotional aspect of dance.
