Contemporary/Lyrical dance at Ignite Dance Co. draws from a combination of various styles, most predominately classical ballet and jazz. It is free from the sometimes rigid structure seen in other styles and allows the dancer to connect feeling and intent to their movements. Contemporary dance tends to be a little more abstract, more often performed to instrumental music, whereas Lyrical often uses music with lyrics, drawing on the emotion of the music for inspiration. Both variants focus on floor work, the use of gravity and learning to let go of the body. It is often danced in bare feet or using foot thongs and has few limitations.
