A dance style fusion of ballet, modern and jazz dance techniques. It is commonly set to popular music with vocals. The name lyrical comes from the word “lyrics” because dancers use the lyrics of a song to inspire them to do certain movements or show expression.The goal of a lyrical dancer is to use gesture, facial expression, and controlled movements in order to execute their movements and emotions fully. Besides emotional connection to music, lyrical dance typically encourages use of articulation, line, weight, and movement qualities. Due to its demand for intermediate to advanced technical skill and emotional focus, it is popular primarily with teenage dancers.
