IGNITE is a program at Spotlight Dance Works for dancers looking for a competitive team experience, without the commitment of our Pre Pro Company. IGNITE requires a class commitment level of two nights per week. The IGNITE team will represent Spotlight Dance Works at local talent competitions, community events and SDW performances. IGNITE is for dancers ages 6 and over with at least one year of recreational dance experience.  Dancers in the IGNITE Performing Company at Spotlight Dance Works will participate in a curriculum that upholds the SDW pillars of community, positivity, artistry and dedication in order to foster long standing relationships with peers, faculty and dance as an artform.
