On September 19th join your friends for a special 3rd Saturday Dance party. What’s so special? We will be celebrating 13 years of Spotlight magic!

It’s summer time and that means it’s time for the Spotlight Summer Dance Camp, formerly known as the Spotlight Dance Spectacular Workshops.

The love from the crowd was absolutely insane and their cheering and support for the dancers shows just how much the community at large loves the Spotlight Ballroom. The show was so popular that we had to had almost 50 seats to each show.
