Lyrical

Jazz dancing is a form of dance that showcases an individual’s style and originality as well as allowing them to interpret and execute moves and steps in their own way. Jazz dancing is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns. This Lyrical class will cover the basic steps, vocabulary, and variations of dance in these fields. Students learn basic techniques based on ballet and modern dance. Through daily warm-ups and exercises, students gain strength, flexibility, endurance, and coordination. Lyrical Jazz classes begin with a thorough warm-up, leading to a series of stretching exercises and isolation movements. Students are also encouraged to practice the art of suspension (moving through positions instead of stopping and balancing in them). Musicality and performance skills are taught through a series of dance combinations with a sense of emotional and spiritual awakening from within.

My daughter has been with Ms Hari for the CSTD Ballet program since P4. Lessons were always exciting as Ms Hari seizes every opportunity to expose her girls to stage performance, and the discipline of ensuing preparations that is vital for their growth and development as dancers as they gain experience and confidence. Having completed Grade 6 in school, my daughter is pursuing the Sub-Elementary syllabus at Ms Hari's dance studio which recently held its first Showcase where all the studio teachers and students worked hard to put up a successful performance! Ms Hari has been not only a great ballet teacher but also a great friend and mentor to her girls. As parent, I am very happy and satisfied to leave my daughter in Ms Hari's hands. Congratulations to Ms Hari as her dance studio moves to a new , more convenient and bigger place. We look forward to more exciting times ahead!
