 Lyrical & Jazz

6-8 year olds

July 13 - August 17

 

This is such a great combination with 30 minutes of Lyrical and 30 minutes of jazz, each style will consist of warm-ups, across the floor combinations and will end with learning a dance in the center.  The class is geared for learning, building self-confidence and coordination while having fun.  Although lyrical is similar to Ballet it is less structured and often thought of as one of the most expressive styles of dance.  During the jazz portion we will explore different styles from the more stylish Broadway Jazz to the funkier video style Jazz.

 

The instructor for this course is Sue White.  She has been a part of the dance world for over 30 years.  Her students include Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Contemporary; Modern, Musical Theater, Hip Hop, Drama, Voice and Acro.
