Petite Pizzazz is an accelerated program for Pre-School and Kindergarten Dancers. This is a high energy and faster paced class for dancers that show focus as well as exceptional coordination and dance skills. These classes are chosen through class and recital observation at the end of each season. Petite Pizzazz is an hour class including Ballet, Tap, and Jazz. These dancers will perform two routines (Jazz and Tap) in our year end show! Petite Pizzazz dancers are also required to participate in a week long Summer Dance Camp at Rhythm Dance Center. This program has proven to be great for our tiny dancers that are ready for a bit more of a challenge!
Spotlight is an accelerated program for dancers in 1st grade and up. It is ideal for dancers who are ready for a more focused classroom atmosphere. Spotlight instructors will provide them with challenging choreography and technique to be the best they can be. It provides an additional performance opportunity to perform their Jazz routine at one talent competition in the spring. Spotlight dancers are chosen through class and recital observation at the end of each season. Class requirements include a weekly Ballet and Jazz class. Dancers are also required to participate in a week long Summer Camp at Rhythm Dance Center. We have 5 different Spotlights - Petite, Mini, Junior, Teen, and Senior. Petite, Mini, Junior Spotlight are directed by Beth Mason. Teen and Senior Spotlight are directed by Cara Mills. While Spotlight is not part of our Performing Company, it is a great stepping stone for those dancers who may be interested in our Performing Company in the future. It has proved to be a successful program for many dancers!
