Classes Start Monday, September 14th

We are looking forward to meeting our new students and seeing all of our returning students. For those who attended class this Summer you know the studio is setup differently with social distancing squares on the dance room floors and other changes. We know it is different and not what everyone expects, but we have to do it this way in order to be open for in studio classes.

Registration Now Open

Registration for fall classes has started. You can register in person (see next post for hours) or for the first time online. If you are a new student you will need to provide the standard information, pick your classes and pay. Returning students will need to verify their family and student information, register and pay. It is important to make sure your contact information and your student’s birthdate are correct. Some classes are age restricted so birthdates matter. If you are trying to register for a class but do not see it, go back and check your student’s birthdate. Payment with a credit card or e-check is required at checkout, but those wanting to make future payments in the studio can.

Classes Start Tomorrow – See You Soon

Hi Spotlight Dancers,

Dance classes will start tomorrow, Monday, September 9th. We are excited to begin our 49th Dance Season. If you have not registered yet, we would love for you to join us. You may email me, or call the studio 703-973-8133. The dance schedule may be found on our website (Class Listing (PDF) or Day Planner (PDF) or website)

Teen Musical Theater (Mondays from 8:00-9:00) and Teen Tumbling (Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 PM) will have delayed start dates. For those enrolled we will adjust your tuition to reflect the late start date.

Over the summer we repainted the the lobby, hallway and benches with Spotlight colors. We also replaced all of the carpet for the first time since opening 9 years ago. The old carpet was covered with numerous coffee, soda and food stains. We really want to carpet fresh and clean and therefore are reminding everyone that no food or drink of any type (other than water) is permitted anywhere in the building.

We look forward to meeting all of you and catching up with our continuing dancers. Have a great night and see you at the studio this week.
