An ability based (weekly) combined class of contemporary, lyrical and commercial dance, split into 20 minute increments. Contemporary dance breaks away from the strict techniques and movements of ballet/jazz and is all about storytelling, freedom and self-expression, pupils will also have the opportunity to learn some acrobatic tricks in this class. Lyrical, somewhat similar to contemporary is about dancing to the lyrics to the song rather than the counts, this makes for beautiful, expressive performances. Commercial dance pulls moves from jazz, hip hop and street dance, but also, for entertainment purposes, might also include ballet or even musical theatre.
