Jazz and Lyrical

Jazz is a fun dance style that relies heavily on originality and improvisation. Many jazz dancers mix different styles into their dancing, incorporating their own expression. Jazz dancing often uses bold, dramatic body movements, including body isolations and contractions. This technique class combines traditional jazz with the ever-changing styles of today. Each class consists of a warm up, across the floor progressions and upbeat dance combinations. This class is high-energy and is for anyone who wants to have fun!

Lyrical/Jazz
Contemporary or Lyrical is a hybrid of ballet, jazz, lyrical and modern dance styles. It is a ballet-based technique that allows a greater range of movement than the strict body lines and foot work in traditional schools of ballet. Contemporary Ballet exposes dancers to a wide range of techniques that fosters versatility. This class focuses on centering, strengthening the body, increasing flexibility, improving balance, proper placement, body alignment, fluidity and emotion. The dancer learns to let the music and their own passion guide the movement. The class consists of a warm up with stretching, centre work, and a full dance routine at the end of the class which is all set to contemporary music. The class will let you express yourself through dance and music, often times the choreography tells the story of the music.
