If your pre-teen or teen has already been learning jazz dance or ballet and would like to expand their learning into other forms of dance, our Omaha children’s lyrical dance classes will help transform your child’s talent while learning high jumps, twisting turns and fluid, expressive forms of dancing.
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 many technical elements of classical 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. The songs chosen usually express very strong emotions, like love, joy and anger. Lyrical dance is very graceful with moves flowing smoothly and seamlessly.
