"Our daughter loved the week she spent at your camp. We wanted her to have a fun time doing something she loves - dancing. We didn't expect that her dancing was actually going to improve as much as it did during the short time she was there. Thank You!"

"My daughter has been a camper for 4 years at ADTC. What most people don't know is that she attends 4 weeks per summer. That equates to 16 shows, 16 weeks of pure dance bliss! The first year we enrolled her for 1 week, she stayed for 4! Next year (2014) she will be a CIT and is excited for the new adventure."

"ADTC has been a valuable experience for my daughter...she has met some wonderful new friends and teachers. She has learned some excellent new dance skills and the choreography is challenging and fun. We have been very impressed with the Friday night show and now much she has learned in a week. She looks forward to returning to ADTC next summer!"

LYRICAL JAZZ DANCE CLASSES AT ADTC
Lyrical dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion to interpret music and express emotion.
HISTORY OF LYRICAL DANCE
Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance techniques. Lyrical dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion to interpret music and express emotion. A lyrical dancer's movements attempt to show the meaning of the music. Lyrical jazz dance is a unique dance form in that it has no particular history. It is the coming together of ballet, jazz, and modern , and is performed to music with lyrics. The lyrics of a song are the driving force for the inspiration of the movement. Choreography is often emotional, gripping, and delicate all at the same time.
Learn fun lyrical dance routines from the best American jazz dance faculty this summer at our summer dance training camps!
LYRICAL DANCE AT ADTC OVERNIGHT DANCE CAMPS
Whether you're an absolute beginner or experienced performer, we have some of the best lyrical dance faculty on the planet, and your lyrical dance instruction will include fun lyrical dance moves like leaps and turns that are airy and flowing. Our instructors focus on ballet technique, while challenging campers to use motion to individually interpret music and express their emotion. Movements in lyrical jazz dance are characterized by their fluidity and grace.
Lyrical Dance Classes at ADTC ULTIMATE Overnight Camps
Jazz dance is the main focus at our Jazz Dance INTENSIVES . Since we consider lyrical jazz dance a sub-dance-style of jazz dance, lyrical jazz classes are offered at these camps. Our INTENSIVE Jazz Dance Camps differ from our ULTIMATE Overnight Dance Camps only in that the dancing focuses on jazz dance styles alone (as compared to jazz in combination with other dance styles like hip hop, Broadway and lyrical). At our Jazz Dance INTENSIVES, campers take four dance classes per day that explore the many variations of jazz, including lyrical jazz - what could be more fun?
