Lyrical Dance Classes at Broadway Bound Dance Center
Broadway Bound Dance Center offers some of the finest Lyrical dance instruction in Bergen County. Our Lyrical students are trained in Ballet and Jazz technique. This style helps every student to gain a deep understanding of movement and it’s connection to music.
Driven by the lyrics and storytelling, our students are encouraged to tap into their emotion. Lyrical teaches the artist how to convey deep feelings—inspired by music—through the art of dance. Via technical warmup, students learn contrast between abrupt and sustained movements. There is an emphasis on the quality of movement; the creation of beautiful lines and a connection to the audience.
Every Lyrical class is a journey that begins with the subtleness of the music and crescendos with beautiful choreographic combinations.
Our Lyrical Dance Costumes, Shoes and Detail is an important factor that connects the student to the emotional moments within the Lyrical Dance performance which is why our Students discover that dance is more than technique and tricks. Dance encompasses one’s expression through his or her own ability to tell a story. For reasons like this, Ballet must be taken as a prerequisite to, or in conjunction with our Lyrical Dance Class.
More About Lyrical Dance Class
Lyrical Dance is a style of dance created by merging ballet and jazz. The style is usually danced at a faster pace than ballet but not as fast as jazz. Lyrical dancing is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements to express strong feelings and emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics in the chosen song. Because lyrical dancing focuses on the expression of strong emotion, the style concentrates more on individual approach and expressiveness than the precision of the dancer’s movements. Because of this, there is not as much focus on the choreography, and, in fact, the choreography often exists only as a general guide for the dancer, not as a routine that has to be exactly followed. Although lyrical dancers are often featured today on popular dance television shows, including Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance?,” the style did not gain popularity until the 1990s.
