Your child will move a lot in this class, as they cover a large amount of space on the dance floor. The dancers travel with soaring jumps and leaps, and graceful walks and turns. It will challenge the dancers to interpret the music through their dancing. Movements in lyrical are fluid, continuous, and graceful, with the dancer flowing seamlessly from one move to another. These emotional dance moves help the dancer connect on an emotional level with the audience. As your dancer advances in this technique, they can find it is a beautiful way to express feelings through movement, music, and lyrics.
