***Ages for auditions are also based on levels of dance. Ages 8 & Up are similar to Level I at Dance Camp and Ages 13 and Up will be Level II. Dancers should look at the Levels described below to see where they should audition. Any dancer is welcome to bump down to the Level I audition if they feel necessary, but no dancer 12 and under may bump up to the Level II audition unless they are approached by Spotlight Faculty to do so. If you are new to Spotlight, are in the in between age range, or are unsure for any reason about which audition to come to please speak to Dede or Lindsay and they will guide you to the appropriate audition for you***

WHICH LEVEL ARE YOU? Read the descriptions below to get a better idea of what class level you should participate in, or please ask instructors for their opinion if you are still unsure.

LEVEL I: (8 yrs old & up): Dancers should have some experience in these subjects, but it is not necessary to have extensive knowledge. They should have worked on single pirouettes and may be working towards doubles, grand jete and developpe leaps, chaine turns in combinations etc. These classes will incorporated barre, across the floor and center floor combinations, but will be moving at a slower pace than Level II classes and will be concentrating on basic technical elements within combinations.
LEVEL II: Dancers should have a strong grasp on these dance techniques already and are looking to expand their talent with advanced choreography. They should already have strong double pirouettes working for triples and other advanced technical elements such as fouettes, attitude leaps etc. Expect combinations to be high paced and to be taught quickly. Classes will include center floor, barre and across the floor materials depending on the class.
