Lyrical Dance |  K-6
This is an open level class for students to express themselves through lyrical dance (combination of jazz and ballet), learn how movements are connected to the lyrics of a song, learn to use and incorporate emotion into dance, and also start to become involved in the choreography process. Students will be expected to perform in the recital.
While this is not a worship dance class, students will learn how we can glorify God through dance in a modest way, and will use Christian, classical music, and classical crossover (e.g. The Piano Guys) music during class and the recital.
  •  Students should wear comfortable, form fitting attire, and either ballet or jazz shoes.
  • For the recital, students will need ballet shoes and there may be a costume fee (under $20).

Mary Coleman might say that ballet was her first true love. She has taught many forms of dance (including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and Zumba®), and all ages, 3 years and older. She has classic French ballet and pointe training, as well as instruction in jazz, lyrical, tap, danceline, modern, and even hip hop. Her teaching style strongly emphasizes solid technique, but also acknowledges the need for emotion to become a well-rounded dancer. She has always envisioned Heaven as including dance, and she firmly believes in Psalm 149:3, “Let them praise His name with dancing.”
