Well... Contemporary Jazz is pretty much Jazz Lyrical. It is modern (contemporary) dance with some jazz in the mix. It is usually to soft or medium soft music and the choreography flows. It may have a Jazzy feel to it, or it may not. Contemporary Jazz has more options for themes, choreography, style, ETC. Personally, I believe that Contemporary Jazz or Jazz Lyrical is a fun class to take and teach!:)
