Katie Delozier and Stephanie Stute wanted to create a place where young people in the community could become involved in the arts and grow to appreciate all aspects of it. The Spotlight provides youth in the community a positive environment where they can learn many types of dance and develop both technically and emotionally as dancers. The Spotlight opened in 2008, with two dance studios, and offers instruction in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, pointe, creative movement and gymnastics. The Spotlight has continued to grow over the years, expanding its class offerings and now offers both dance and gymnastics instruction.
The dance and gymnastics studios are located at 685 Harcourt Road in Mt. Vernon. The Spotlight offers recreational gymnastics for ages 3 through 18. All Spotlight dancers and gymnasts ages 3 through adult participate in the annual spring recital held at the Memorial Theater located in Mt. Vernon.
"Our studio is filled with positive teachers who love to teach and have a passion for dance and gymnastics."
