The fundamentals of Jazz Dance are found in many other styles including Musical Theatre. Jazz dance often utilizes modern music and features syncopated movements, energetic choreography, and complex patterns.
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; it will interpret and express the lyrics, and match the energy of the song. Lyrical is often described as graceful, yet requires strength and control.
