At the conclusion of each dance year Spotlight On Dance produces an annual Spring Performance for both our Middlebury and South Burlington Studios. Typically, held during the first or second weekend of June, these performances are the culmination of the years class work and are intended to showcase the hard work students have done. With the exception of ‘drop-in’ classes, students in all classes usually participate.
Since our studios have hundreds of students, performances are typically split into two or three shows per studio divided by younger and older students in order to limit the amount of time per show. (Otherwise the show would be about 6 hours long!) Performances are staged using professional lighting, sound, and costumes. A dress rehearsal is held a day or so before the performance so students can get acquainted with the stage, and costumes.
Nominal admission is charged to cover recital expenses. Costumes are required and run approximately $40 - $50 each (teen and adult costumes may be slightly higher). A deposit of $25.00 per costume will be required with your January payment. The balance is due in full with the April payment. There will be no refund for costumes after they are ordered. Videos and flash photography is prohibited at the recital because of the danger to performers. Recitals will be professionally videotaped and available for purchase. Flash photography and videos may be taken at dress rehearsals as the lighting used at rehearsals mitigates the danger to dancers.
