Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet with jazz and contemporary dance techniques.
Lyrical dance gained its name not because the lyrics or words of a song are (indeed, often) emphasized over the song's rhythm, but because of the definition of the word lyrical: having a poetic, expressive quality; musical; characterized by or expressing spontaneous, direct feeling; expressing deep personal emotions or observation; highly rhapsodic or enthusiastic.
Lyrical Tech is primarily focused on combining the many technical elements of classical ballet with the freedom and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern dance. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement.
Advanced Lyrical focuses on a combination of intricate, highly technical, and pedestrian moves. Choreography can be gripping and exquisitely delicate, at the same time. The song's lyrics are a driving force and key inspiration for the movement.
