Spotlight is an invitation-only 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 dancers with challenging choreography and technique to be the best they can be. This invitation-only class 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, or through audition. Class requirements include a weekly ballet, jazz and hip hop class. Dancers are also required to participate in a week long summer dance 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 proven to be a successful program for many dancers!
