Consider starting you little one in a dance program. Spotlight has Pre-Tap and Pre-Ballet for children ages 2-4. We have pre-dance classes on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Of course if your dancer is older, but new to dance we also have classes for them as well. For more information on our Fall Pre-Dance Program see our Pre-Dance Guidelines and Class Listing.

Fall Registration Starts on Monday, August 7th

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

Dear Dancers and Parents,

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and finding plenty of time to relax.

Fall is rapidly approaching and early registration for classes starts on Monday, August 7th continuing through Thursday, August 17th. We have made one change to the program and that is reducing the number of payments from 10 to 9 by eliminating the June payment. This resulted in a slight increase the cost of each payment, but the overall total annual cost remains the same as last year. As in prior years we are offering a $10 discount on the registration fee to those who register by Thursday, August 17th. Dates and times are as follows:

  • August 7th – August 8th: 11am – 4pm
  • August 9th – August 10th: 3pm – 7pm
  • August 14th: 5pm – 7pm
  • August 15th: 10am – 1pm and 5pm – 7pm
  • August 16th: 5pm – 7pm
  • August 17th: 10am – 1pm and 5pm – 7pm
  • Other times will be posted on our website and on Facebook

If you need help choosing the appropriate class level for your dancer(s), myself or another teacher will be available to assist you during registration. Additionally you may email me ( or you may call the studio. Keep in mind we can make adjustments once classes start if your dancer needs to change levels.

During registration we will have leotards, tights, skirts, and dance shoes for sale. Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical and Hip Hop/Parade shoes will be available for sizing and purchase (shoes will be delivered during the first week of dance). We offer affordable, high-quality alternatives to name brand shoes. Payless, Target or Walmart dance shoes or any other type of shoe with thin aluminum taps may not be worn on our dance floors. If in doubt check with us first before purchasing shoes. Additionally, if your existing tap shoes have scratches or have been worn outside the studio, you will need to replace them. Please inspect your dance shoes prior to registration and make sure your child does not wear his/her dance shoes outside at anytime.

If you cannot register in person, you may send in your registration and payment information to our mailing address, which is listed below and on the website. We cannot, however, accept phone or Internet registrations. Additionally we cannot accept credit card payments over the phone.

Classes start on September 11th and continue through June 15th. Our 2017-2018 Schedule (Day Planner or Listing), Enrollment Contract and Registration Forms are available on our website in the Downloads section.

If you need further placement information or have any questions, please call us (703-973-8133) or email us (

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all soon,

Ms. Lisa and the Spotlight Staff
