dance lyrics

Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet with jazz and contemporary dance techniques.

Lyrical dance style has its primary basis in ballet, combining the many technical elements of classical ballet with the freedom and airier aspects of jazz, contemporary and modern dance. It is typically considered a sub-category of jazz and/or contemporary dance, the latter itself being an emerging category. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement. It is a combination of intricate, highly technical, and pedestrian/naturalistic moves. It is commonly set to popular music with vocals as well as rich instrumental portions of a pop song. Lyrical inspires choreographers and dancers to use movement to interpret music and express emotion. More than other aforementioned dance styles, a lyrical performance aligns with the essence of a musical piece, in addition to highlighting the beauty, openness and strength of the dancer. By contrast, ballet, Broadway/theater dance, and certain jazz genres tend towards a more presentational quality.

Lyrical dance gained its name not because the lyrics or words of a song are (indeed, often) emphasized over the song’s rhythm, but because of the definition of the word lyrical: having a poetic, expressive quality; musical; characterized by or expressing spontaneous, direct feeling; expressing deep personal emotions or observation; highly rhapsodic or enthusiastic. Choreography can be gripping and exquisitely delicate, at the same time. That a song’s lyrics are a driving force and key inspiration for the movement accounts for why a sizeable number of dancers are unaware of how the style’s name was derived, erroneously thinking it came from the word “lyrics”.

  • N-Dubz – We Dance On

Na na naii

Watch me while i stand here
Watch my feet, my stance, my body language
I’m not someone to be messed with
I’m a fox on a mission
You know you’re challenging the best here

It’s gonna be real hard
But I’m gonna be okay
As long as I try real hard
I’m always gonna find my way
I’ma find my way

Let me tell ’em
Ima stand up like a soldier
Ima get them ‘til it’s over
I’ll keep marching to the beat
‘til there’s bruises on my feet
Now I’m falling to my knees

‘Cause I’m gonna take this all the way
It’s now or never
I’ll break what’s in my way
Ima stand up like a soldier
Tonight I’m gonna take over

Chorus:`Cause I know everything’s gonna be alright
Now you’re standing here right by my side
And we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

Everything’s gonna be okay
The streets will lighten up our way
So we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

Not in a million years
Did I think my feet would bring me this far
So much frustration, sleepless nights
Now that I’m in charge
At first no one gave me the time of day
Now I’m left on my own to show the way
My sisters, brothers from other mothers
Can we take this all the way

Could of kicked us to the curb
These days are so hard to get heard
We gonna stand up like a soldier
Take everything we deserve (trust)
At first everyone was cautious
When we brought in something new
But after weeks of practicing
We knew exactly what to do

I’ma stand up like a soldier
I’ma get them ‘til it’s over
I’ll keep marching to the beat
‘til there’s bruises on my feet
Now I’m falling to my knees

‘Cause I’m gonna take this all the way
It’s now or never
I’ll break what’s in my way
Ima stand up like a soldier
Tonight I’m gonna take over

Chorus:‘Cause I know everything’s gonna be alright
Now you’re standing here right by my side
And we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

Everything’s gonna be okay
The streets will lighten up our way
So we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

‘Cause I know everything’s gonna be alright
Now you’re standing here right by my side
And we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

Everything’s gonna be okay
The streets will lighten up our way
So we dance on, dance on, we gonna dance on
Ain’t gonna work for life when we know we can dance on

  • Garth Brooks – The Dance lyrics

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared ‘neath the stars alone
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you’d ever say goodbye

And now I’m glad I didn’t know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I’d have had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn’t I a king
But if I’d only known how the king would fall
Hey who’s to say you know I might have changed it all

And now I’m glad I didn’t know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I’d have had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I’d have had to miss the dance

  • Lee Ann Womack:I Hope You Dance lyrics

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they’re worth taking
Lovin’ might be a mistake
But it’s worth making
Don’t let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)

(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

  • Lady GaGa: Just Dance Lyrics

I’ve had a little bit too much
All of the people start to rush.
Start to rush babe.
A dizzy twister dance
Can’t find my drink or man.
Where are my keys, I lost my phone.
What’s going on on the floor?
I love this record baby, but I can’t see straight anymore.
Keep it cool what’s the name of this club?
I can’t remember but it’s alright, alright.

[Chorus:]
Just dance. Gonna be okay.
Da-doo-doo-doo
Just dance. Spin that record babe.
Da-doo-doo-doo
Just dance. Gonna be okay.
Duh-duh-duh-duh
Dance. Dance. Dance. Just dance.

Wish I could shut my playboy mouth.
How’d I turn my shirt inside out? Inside out babe.
Control your poison babe
Roses with thorns they say.
And we’re all gettin’ hosed tonight.
What’s going on on the floor?
I love this record baby, but I can’t see straight anymore.
Keep it cool what’s the name of this club?
I can’t remember but it’s alright, alright.

[Chorus]

[Colby O’Donis]
When I come through on the dance floor checking out that catalogue.
Can’t believe my eyes so many women without a flaw.

And I ain’t gonna’ give it up, steady tryna pick it up like a call
I’m gonna hit it, I’m gonna hit it and flex and do it until tomorrow, yeah
Shorty i can see that you got so much energy
The way you twirling up them hips round and round
There’s no reason at all why you can’t leave here with me
In the meantime stay, let me watch you break it down.

[Chorus]

Half psychotic, sick hypnotic got my blueprint it’s symphonic.
Half psychotic, sick hypnotic got my blueprint electronic.
Half psychotic, sick hypnotic got my blueprint it’s symphonic.
Half psychotic, sick hypnotic got my blueprint electronic.

Go. Use your muscle, carve it out, work it, hustle
I got it, just stay close enough to get it
Don’t slow! Drive it, clean it lysol, bleed it
Spend the last dough
(I got it)
In your Pocko
(I got it)

[Chorus]

  • Justice – D.A.N.C.E. Lyrics

Do the D.A.N.C.E
1234, fight!
Stick to the B.E.A.T
Get ready to ignite
You were such a P.Y.T
Catching all the lights
Just easy as A.B.C
That’s how we make it right (x3)

Do the D.A.N.C.E
Stick to the B.E.A.T
Just easy as A.B.C

Do the Dance (Do the Dance)
The way you move is a mystery
Do the dance
You’re always there for music and me (x3)

Streaming through the radio
Dancing all around
Spread the word in stereo
At the speed of sound

Do the Dance (Do the Dance)
The way you move is a mystery
Do the dance
You’re always there for music and me (x2)

Do the D.A.N.C.E (Do the Dance, Do the Dance)
Stick to the B.E.A.T (Do the Dance, Do the Dance)
You were such a P.Y.T (Do the Dance, Do the Dance)
Just easy as A.B.C (Do the Dance, Do the Dance)

Under the spotlights
Neither black nor white
It doesn’t matter
Do the Dance (do the dance)

As strong as you might
Working day and night
Whatever happens
Do the DANCE (do the dance)

Under the spotlights
Neither black nor white
It doesn’t matter
Do the Dance (do the dance)

As strong as you might
Working day and night
Whatever happens

Do the Dance (Do the Dance)
The way you move is a mystery
Do the Dance
You’re always there for music and me (x2)

The way you move is a mystery…
