Lyrical

A fusion of Ballet and jazz, performed to slower music with very fluid movements - characterized by the expression of the dancer's inner emotion.
Lyrical dance is the fusion of ballet and jazz technique. Expression from the inner emotion is a primary factor in choreographing and interpreting this art form. A key element in looking at a lyrical piece is seeing the movements done in a flowing or continuous pattern.
Lyrical dance interprets music or words, showing the audience the emotion of the particular piece. The lines are traditional in nature with a technique base that determines the correct placement of the body angles. "
