About Us

In 1994, we opened Spotlight Dance Studio, Inc. bringing with us our love of dance and training from numerous teachers from around the world, stage & screen.  Since then, our doors have welcomed an overwhelming number of families & students who shared the same love of dance and desire for a dance education.  We also have participated in many community services, including the annual Wantagh Tree/Menorah Lighting ceremonies. 

As with distinct differences of dance styles, so are our students.  Each child is unique and yet all yearn to have fun in learning.  Our creative, talented and professional faculty encourage each student to be the best they can be, to learn technique, to perform, and to respect with the joy of dance.

From Ballet, Tap, Hip Hop & Kickline, to Competition teams, Pre-K, Lyrical & Fitness classes ... our program enriches all who study here.

Spotlight Dance Studio, Inc. offers
two (see below) large air-conditioned studios, observation screens, and floating wood floors.  We also have a spacious, comfortable waiting area.  Let us order dance shoes and specialty outfits for you at fair prices.

"My children have attended Spotlight Dance Studio since day one.  The highlight of my kid’s week is always going to dance.  Miss Anne Marie and Miss Celeste have always provided an atmosphere of nurturing and caring, while realizing the full potential of each child in the class.  Their love of dance shines in every one of their students!  I don’t know how they do it, but each year the recital gets better.  Always creative, with great music, costumes and confident dancers that never disappoint!

Thank you, Spotlight, for so many great years of dance."  – Pat H.

"My daughter and I love Spotlight Dance Studio. Miss Celeste and Miss Anne Marie give their heart and soul into making each production the best it can be.  They are extremely talented and their level of creativity is astounding. Each child is special to every teacher. My daughter never gets tired of going to practice. She loves dancing and loves being in the “Spotlight”. We live15 miles away but we wouldn’t go anywhere else.”  – Judy A.

"When my daughter expressed an interest in dance at the age of three, I turned to other moms in the area for dance school recommendations.  One mom told me that I couldn't go wrong with Spotlight Dance.  Seven years (and one more daughter) later, I couldn't agree more.

Miss Anne Marie and Miss Celeste's studio is a friendly, inviting place where all are welcome.  Unlike some other dance instructors, they are patient, kind, and have a wonderful sense of humor!  They made my daughters proud of their bodies. With each passing year they gained not only dance skills, but also strength, grace and confidence.  I know that the positive experiences my girls have had at Spotlight will stay with them always.

Thank you Miss Anne Marie and Miss Celeste!"

"My daughter Devney has been dancing at Spotlight for ten years and it has been a phenomenal experience.  Watching Devney grow as a dancer has truly been amazing.  You can always feel that Ms. Anne Marie, Ms. Celeste and the Spotlight family care about their dancers and their continued growth as dancers.  I want to commend you on your level of commitment to all of our children over the years.  The Spotlight family has been a perfect fit for us.  Looking forward to many more years together."   – Kim Albrecht
