Do you include tricks in your lyrical routines?

I was just curious. Do you include acrobatic tricks into your lyrical routines? I don't mean like tumbling passes or contortion, but things like arials, walkovers, and handsprings.

I put arials in my lyrical routines, but it really depends on the type of song and the ability of the dancers in the group.

Once in a while, I'll throw in a front or backwalk over into my lyrical solos, but I think it's very distracting, and to me it isn't really "dancing" anymore if you just have trick after trick after trick.

If it fits we do....but no back/front handsprings...

We just put back and front walkovers, aerials, and layouts in them...Like I had an aerial in my contemp solo, but it didn't match the music very well, so we took it out.

Our choreographers try to keep it real, and do more dancing and "art" than trick, trick, trick; but depending on the song there is sometimes triccks in our dance. :D
