Class Description
Ballet

Modern/Lyrical
Modern dance is the name for a modern concert dance genre. It is not a specific dance technique, but a collection of methods developed from modern and post-modern dance and can take on many forms. Lyrical dance is a wonderful combination of basic jazz and ballet, where students learn to stretch or snap movements and interpret the music in choreography.
