Carolina Spotlight Dance Studio is an all-embracing dance studio seeking to accommodate people of various tastes and talents. Our dance instructor is currently qualified to offer classes in the following styles:
Our classes are divided into 2 categories; Recreational and Competitive.
Recreational classes are ideal for those just starting dance, or students who enjoy dancing on a more casual basis.
-Tap/Ballet for ages 3 to 5 years
-Tap/Ballet/Jazz for ages 6 to 18 years
We also offer a Tap/Jazz combination class for adult students.
Why are combination classes important?
At Carolina Spotlight, we believe in creating well-rounded dancers. All disciplines of dance build off of each other and help students develop attributes important in creating a successful dancer. Tap helps develop rhythm, ballet develops grace and poise, and jazz develops flexibility and isolation of movement.
Combination classes also give you more value for your money; however, those wishing to take individual subjects may do so as well.
-Pre-dance- Ages 3 to 5 years (students must be potty trained!)
-Primary- Ages 6 to 9 years
-Secondary- Ages 10 to 18 years
-Adult- Ages 19 years and up

Additional classes open to secondary level students:

Competitive classes are ideal for students with previous dance experience. These students should have a passion for dance, display natural ability, and be willing to focus more time on perfecting the art.

Membership on the competitive team is by audition only. This is to ensure that students are only placed on the competitive team when they are ready for more intense focus. More information will be given to those interested upon registration.
