Our Dance Classes

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:

  • Ballet
  • Pointe
  • Tap
  • Hip Hop
  • Jazz
  • Lyrical / Contemporary
  • Clogging
  • Tumbling


Our classes are divided into 2 categories; Recreational and Competitive.

Recreational Classes

Recreational classes are ideal for those just starting dance, or students who enjoy dancing on a more casual basis. 

  • All main recreational classes are combination style:

            -Creative Movement age 18mo+

            -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.

  • Recreational classes are divided into several age groups:

              

             -Dance With Me  Age 18 months - 4 years

                                          (parents encourage and participate in this class)

             

             -Pre-dance-         Ages 3 to 5 years (students must be potty trained)

                                          Tap and Ballet 

 

             -Combo 1            Ages 6 to 8 years

                                          Ballet, Tap, and Jazz

 

             -Combo 2            Ages 8-10 years

                                          Ballet, Tap, and Jazz

           

             -Combo 3            Ages 10 and up

                                          Tap and Jazz

            -Pointe (Ages 11 years and older upon placement)

            

Competitive Classes

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.

  • 3 team levels are offered currently:

            -Mini Spotlight      -Ages 5 to 8 years

            -Junior Spotlight - Ages 9 to 12 years

            -Teen Spotlight    - Ages 13 to 18 years                                         

 

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.

 

Please note: The above age levels are guidelines. Those dancers who are close to the transition ages will be placed in the appropriate group according to audition score and performance throughout the audition process.

 

What is required of a Competitive Student?

  • All team members are required to attend 3-4 regional competitions. Teen andSenior team members also attend our national competition (Mini and Junior have the option for Nationals). These competitions come with additional entry fees and typically require more elaborate costumes. It is the family's responsibility to provide transportation for their student(s) to and from competitions.

 

  • All competitive dancers are required to take stretch/technique class as well as ballet.

 

  • All competitive dancers may be required to practice on Saturdays and must follow the competitive team attendance policy.

 

  • Competitive Students must purchase a Team Jacket to represent our Studio at Competitions. (2018 price was $36, price subject to change)

 

What forms of dance are taken to competitions?

Our teams compete in Tap, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Clogging.  Solos, Duets, and Trios may also compete in a variety of dance styles.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are also available to students who are enrolled in our recreational or competitive program in the form of solo, duet, or trio classes. Private lessons are a great way to work on technique or an extra dance to take to competitions!

Tuition

Monthly tuition starts at $55 per month (Dance with Me is $35) and increases based on how many hours danced per week. Adult Dance will also be offered a special rate (Free for parents of enrolled student).

 

We also offer several discounts such as; 20% off for siblings and family maximum fees. Contact us for full details
