Lyrical and ballet are both extremely common yet incredibly different types of dance They both differ from each other for numerous reasons Before ballerinas begin their extensive class the instructor warms the dancers muscles up at the barre A barre is a long wooden horizontal rail attached to the wall and is approximately the height of the dancers rib cage When the dancer is at the barre they practice such combinations as plies ton dues devlapes frappes and grand batemas just to name a few In lyrical the student is required to warm up on their own in the center of the floor with no set combinations at the barre Lyrical doesnt follow most of the challenging terms that ballet instructors use Jette split leap boure pass and calypso are just a few terms that both ballet and lyrical teachers use to instruct a class Ballet has a set of five positions that are used commonly at the barre across the floor or in the center of the room First position is when the feet are turned out and the heels touch second position can be done by simply taking your feet from first position and moving them outwards to the sides a little further than shoulder width In order to do third position the ballerina must then take either her right or left heel and place it in the middle of the opposite foot to form a T Fourth position is simply done by placing the foot that is turned out in third and pushing it forward so it creates the illusion of an open T shape Fifth position is the most complicated position to work from Take the right foot and turn it out so the toes are facing the wall to the right side of you then simply drag the left foot directly behind it so both feet touch but the left foot is turned out facing the wall
