Class Description

Ballet provides a great foundation for any other dance style, and demands respect, diligence and poise. Lyrical is a fluid, expressive dance form that blends ballet, jazz, and modern styles. Lyrical Choreography is influenced by Ballet and is designed to connect to the music; interpret and express the lyrics, and match the energy of the song. Lyrical is often described as graceful, yet requires strength and control. Come join us as we learn the foundational basics of these dance styles and practice them in Broadway songs to be showcased at the end of the session.

While attending SHSU she performed under the direction of award winning choreographers Andy Noble and Dionne Noble of NobleMotion Dance, Dana Nicolay of Nicolay Dance Works, and Johnathan Charles. She was honored with the SHSU Choreography Award in 2014, and one of her pieces was nominated to compete in the American College Dance Festival.
