Lyrical B is a mix of ballet and jazz dance for ages 11-12 years


Lyrical dance is easiest described as a combination of jazz and ballet.  It is faster than ballet, but not as fast as jazz. Lyrical dance combines the technique of ballet with the freedom and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern dance. Most lyrical dance pieces are performed to music with lyrics and the lyrics of the song are what the choreography of the dance is based on. Lyrical B is a 45 minute class.

Dance schools all around the world wear a dance uniform, to help students and teachers alike get the most out of class. Long hair should be in a ballet bun for ballet or tied back neatly for class.

For your first class, don’t worry if you don’t have the uniform yet, just wear something comfortable to move in, and bare feet.  Upon enrolment we will send you all the information you need about dance uniform, hair etc.


Lyrical Uniform:


  • Lavender wide-strap or Purple camisole leotard
  • Black leggings or skirt
  • Bare feet or ‘toe undies’



45-Min Classes (1x/week):  $172 per term
