Lyrical is a very popular genre of dance combining ballet and jazz techniques. Each class begins with a 15-20 minute warmup followed by progressions across the floor. The best way to describe this genre is moving gracefully with lots of expression triggered by the words of a song. Lyrical is a very emotional style of dance which children love because they get to be so expressive. Combining both parallel and turned out placements, this dance form can be challenging as the focus is on strong body lines and elongation. As strong focus on improv and improv techniques are used in this class. We recommend accompanying lyrical with a ballet class for additional technique. 1-2 assistants in each class. Levels are categorized by age for your convenience. Ages 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13 & up. 1 hour class. Performs in the recital. Foot paws required. Fitted dance attire-all colors welcome

At Legworks class placement is very important. Each level provides a stepping stone used to build a foundation of necessary fundamentals, crucial in dance training. We place our dancers according to ability first and foremost. We feel strongly about giving children the chance to excel at their own individual pace. However, if you are new to our studio, we will place a child according to age first, and advance them as needed. Typically, each child spends two years in each age level before graduating to the next level. We lengthen the curriculum to advance over a two-year span. Legworks has developed a set curriculum based on our 36 years of expertise in dance training and is reviewed and updated every season. Our curriculum is genre and level specific. This step by step process will allow each child to be successful in their abilities to learn dance.
