What is lyrical jazz?
Lyrical Jazz is a dynamic amalgamation of ballet and contemporary dance. This Jazz style displays the art and discipline of ballet as well as the natural pace of a modern dance style.
Matt Mattox is a legend. Combining his ballet expertise with that of Jack Cole’s distinguished style has resulted in a style of Jazz that is visibly powerful. The style combines flamenco, modern and tap as well as influences from his own background in ballet. Reinforced by his philosophy that all dance is a form of expression and inspiration; it is a freestyle form of dance, which gives the artist the pleasure and freedom of expressing their individuality.
Mattox’s techniques are extremely powerful and have been integrated into Jazz dance techniques: especially the concepts of isolation and driving rhythm.
