Recreational Program

The recreational program at Spotlight DanceWorks provides a stimulating and fun dance environment for male and female students of all ages. At Spotlight DanceWorks all you have to do is love to dance! Whether for fun or fitness, recreational students receive quality dance instruction in all forms of dance from professional and enthusiastic dance teachers. We are committed to creating a fun and friendly environment where students gain team building and confidence. All recreational students will have the chance to showcase their talent at the annual dance recital — an exciting night for everyone!

Competitive Program

The Spotlight DanceWorks’ Competitive Team offers a balance between the fun of dance and the challenge to excel in our craft. Students can compete in solos, duets, trios and groups. Being a member of the team requires hard work and dedication but it is also rewarding! The competitive team is expected to train 2 to 3 times a week and will participate in approximately 4 competitions across Southern Ontario. All students are welcome to audition for the team, however, only those accepted will be notified.

Awards Day

Every year Spotlight DanceWorks marks the success of another dance season with our annual awards ceremony. Our students work hard during the year and we look forward to celebrating the achievements of both our recreational and competitive dancers. Family and friends are welcome to join us.
