Lyrical dance is a modern dance form which fuses modern dance, jazz, and ballet. This form is often referred to as contemporary dance. It requires excellent technique to perform,as the moves are often difficult and precise. Moreover, the dancer should be aware of his or her facial expressions while dancing. The form is most often seen in live shows of contemporary music artists and some types of stage shows. The goal of the dancer is to convey the emotion of a song’s lyrics through dance. Intense emotional expression of the face and body are necessary to tell a story that evolves along the lines of the song to which the dance is performed. Unlike other dance forms, lyrical dance is far less concerned with a dancer’s physique. Often, excellent jazz and ballet dancers are drawn to the lyrical style because they lack the traditional dancer’s build. It is quite common to see dancers who are not extremely thin; however, lyrical dance demands a high degree of flexibility and complicated lifts, so dancers with a non traditional build still need to be in excellent physical shape to perform lyrical pieces.
