Description

Having a solid dance foundation is imperative for musical theater students. Singing, acting, and dancing are what it takes to become that standout Triple Threat! Starting with basic ballet / jazz skills and techniques, and we'll build up from there into lyrical dance. Lyrical dance is most often set to music with lyrics, and those lyrics inspire the movements. It is meant to evoke strong emotions in the dancer and the audience member with it’s fluidity and poetic nature. Come expand your repertoire of skills to include lyrical dance!
