Spotlight is an invitation-only accelerated program for dancers in kindergarten 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 and hip hop routines at one talent competition in the spring.

Spotlight dancers are chosen through class and year-end show observation at the end of each season. 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 Spotlight groups - Petite, Mini, Junior, Teen, and Senior. Petite & Mini Spotlight are directed by Beth Mason. Junior, Teen & 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!
