Ballet Technique:

Spotlight uses Barre, stretching, and center exercises to teach the positions and steps of classical ballet in a fun and positive environment in all ballet classes. Flexibility, coordination, balance, body awareness, listening, and discipline skills are stressed. All students learn the correct terminology and meanings of their steps, as well as how to perform each of them. Ballet is the basis of all dance forms and builds a great foundation for all students.  Students are asked to wear a leotard in level color, tights or black leggings, and ballet shoes to class.  Dance skirts and shorts are allowed over tights, however, jean material is not allowed.  Students 12+ and eligible for pointe shoes will be fitted by Spotlight staff at Penny Robin Dancewear.

Tap Dancing:
