Lyrical dance is a union of jazz and ballet techniques that creates a half way point between the two genres.

Lyrical dancers develop physical, spatial, mental, and emotional awareness, while matching the mood and lyrics of the music. The more a dancer can channel his or her emotions and utilize them in the dance, the more the audience can feel the heart of the dancer. Emotions drive lyrical dance. Without the inclusion of the emotions the dance would be void and empty.

Skills such as balance, flexibility, and breath control will be developed by the dancers to improve their technique.

Italia Performing Arts offers a lyrical dance class in Winchester.
