Heart and Lights - The Rockettes New Show

Heart and Lights – The Rockettes New Show

On Saturday, March 29th Spotlight Dance is sponsoring a bus trip to New York City to see the Rockettes in their new show Heart and Lights.  The cost is $120 per person and includes chartered roundtrip bus transportation and a ticket to the show.  We will be leaving at approximately 6AM from the studio parking lot and returning around midnight. We will only be taking one bus so this offer is limited to the first 50 paid participants. Download the Sign Up form and bring it to the studio if you would like to join us.

The Snow and the Parking Lot

Parking Lot Snow

Parking Lot Snow

We still have a tremendous amount of snow and ice in the parking lot. Please watch out for icy areas and your children as some of the snow piles are large enough to obstruct the view of drivers. Additionally there is a lot of snow and/or ice on the sidewalk directly in front of row 1 in the parking lot. We have contacted the landlord and let them know that the lot clearing is unacceptable and they are working to remedy it. Hopefully it will be completed by the time we open today.

Cherry Blossom Parade

Monday, February 10th, 2014

We had a great time at the Parade last year and are looking forward to performing in it this Spring. We will be offering bus transportation to both the practice and the performance. Cost at this time is to be determined, but it is expected to be in the $50/person range for those deciding to ride both buses. We will be creating a list of riders once all of the signup sheets have been turned in and priority will be granted to those listing an interest on their permission form. Priority will be given to dancers and parents who expressed interest on the permission form. Last year the buses filled up fairly quickly so if you would like to ride the bus please sign up. It is unlikely we will get a second bus for the practice or performance due to the difficulty of filling a second bus. While in DC you can enjoy other events that are a part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.

St. Patrick Parade – Baltimore

Spotlight has been invited to participate in the city of Baltimore’s St. Patrick Parade. It takes place on Sunday, March 16th in downtown Baltimore near the aquarium.

This is the first time we have performed in this parade and we are looking forward to it. The Baltimore Christmas Parade has always been one of our favorites with its lively crowd cheering for everyone. We expect this parade to have enthusiastic spectators. General information please refer to the Parade’s website. Your teacher will provide you with information specific to our performance.
