Lyrical Senior

Lyrical Senior:  A mix of ballet and

jazz dance for School Years 8-13

 

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. 

Levels are age-based, Lyrical B is for 11-12 year olds and Lyrical C & D is for 13+ year olds.  We also have a Lyrical/Contemporary combo class for dancers who are already taking Ballet or Jazz at Senior level.

Uniform

 

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 – own choice
  • Own choice of black crossover cardigan or top (over leotard)
  • Bare feet or ‘toe undies’
