Contemporary & Lyrical


Contemporary Dance is a must for the technically trained dancer, and can be described as a mixture of neo classical, modern and jazz styles. Contemporary involves floor work, improvisation and creativity. At BSDC we offer contemporary classes for students aged 12+ and offer annual contemporary exams for the serious dancer. Examinations are taken in the Australia Teachers of Dancing (ATOD) syllabi from Levels 1 to advanced.


Lyrical is a newer genre of dance that is a mixture of Modern and Classical Ballet. The Lyrical style allows the dancer to express themselves and translate the emotion behind the lyrics of a song through dance. A strong classical background is a must for lyrical so we encourage all of our dancers to combine this class alongside a Ballet class.
