The Spotlight’s Teddy Bear Picnic and Spa Parties Coming Soon!

Back by popular demand is the Spotlight’s Teddy Bear Picnic. The party will be held on Saturday, February 25th from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. This party will be for children 2, 3, & 4 years old who are students at the Spotlight. The cost to attend the party is $7 per child. The Teddy Bear Picnic will include a craft, snack, music and dance and lots of fun. Space will be limited and will be filled on a first, come, first serve basis (no spots reserved without payment). Sign up forms are available at the front desk.

And the fun continues for 5, 6 & 7 year olds with the Spotlight Spa Party. This party will be held from 1:00- 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 25 at The Spotlight. The cost to attend this party is $7 per child. Children should come in comfy clothes, no dance shoes needed. They will have a chance to get their nails painted and their hair done. We will dance, play games and have some yummy snacks. It’s going to be a fun and relaxing time!

2017 Spotlight Costume Update

If you are interested in seeing your child’s costume for the spring recital stop by the front desk and ask to view the 2017 costume notebook. Costumes are starting to arrive, Miss Katie and Miss Stephanie will be sorting and invoicing costumes and plan to send home costume balance slips by the end of February. Costumes will not be sent home until April. Once you receive your child’s costume balance slip please plan to pay your balance by March 31 so that your child will be able to take their costume home in April.

Please Report Your Child’s Absence

Please respect your child’s teacher and if they will be missing class for any reason please call the studio at 393-2623, or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know your child will not be attending. Teachers are working very hard on choreography for the spring recital and when your child is not in class it affects everyone. We understand things come up and sometimes students aren’t feeling well, but attendance is VERY important this time of year so please see that your child is in class as much as possible so that they can continue to learn and won’t let their classmates down in the spring recital.

The Spotlight Closing Due to Inclement Weather

Snowflakes will be falling this winter, we would like to remind everyone of The Spotlight’s cancellation policy. If the studio must close due to inclement weather there will be a recording on the voicemail as well as posted on the website at www.thespotlightcenter.com. Just because schools are closed does not mean The Spotlight will be closed, so please check on days that the weather is questionable. The Spotlight staff will attempt to post any closing by 1 p.m.

Reminder: Class Cancellation Policy
There may be times that we must cancel classes due to weather, our policy provides one ‘cushion day” for each day of the week. This means that each day of the week could have one cancelled day of classes without requiring a makeup lesson. If a certain day’s classes are cancelled more than once, a makeup class will be scheduled.

The Spotlight’s Annual Lock-In Date Has Been Set

The Spotlight’s Annual Lock-In will be held on Friday, March 10th. This overnight is open to Spotlight dancers and gymnasts who are 8 years old and older. The cost for the sleepover is $25 per child. Space will be limited and filled on a first come, first serve basis. Spots will not be held without payment. Sign up sheets will be available mid-February, so be sure to watch the information table in the lobby.
