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.

We have received the recital videos and they are available for pickup during registration. Please check our facebook page for days and times. We have a few extras and if there is sufficient demand we might be able to order additional copies. If interested please let the front desk know.
