Students, Musical Theater, Tap Dance in New Hyde Park, NY

Tap Dance

During this course, we explore Broadway tap and other techniques. These various techniques are dependent upon the particular teacher and the teacher’s style. Similar to the Broadway theater dance course, the style of this class is based upon Broadway theater from the 1920s to the present. Students learn strong technique in jazz fundamentals and Broadway choreography.

Lyrical Dance

Lyrical dance is a dance style that blends ballet and jazz dance. Lyrical is generally smoother and a bit faster than ballet, but not quite as fast as jazz. A lyrical dancer uses movement to express strong emotions such as love, joy and anger. Because lyrical dancing focuses on the expression of strong emotion, the style concentrates more on individual approach and expressiveness than the precision of the dancer's movements. Lyrical dancers usually perform to music with lyrics...the lyrics of the chosen song serve as inspiration for movements and expressions.
