Spotlight Events, Inc., producer of Spotlight Dance Cup, was founded in 1995 to provide a well-organized, prestigious, and dynamic event that will inspire students and teachers to strive for excellence in mid-size communities. Our competitions were so well-received in the communities we served that we expanded to numerous cities throughout the West and Midwest. Our first touring season, 1996, included 12 Regional events and one National Championship Final with fewer than 2000 individual competitors combined. Last year, we toured 33 Regional cities and held three National Championship Finals, representing over 20,000 individual dancers and over 15,000 performances. Our next season will include approximately 34 Regional cities and three National Championship Finals.
Spotlight Dance Cup continues to lead the industry through technological and theatrical innovations. Spotlight not only is the FIRST competition to implement real-time, computerized scoring, but also leads the industry with our state-of-the-art approach to theatrical staging, sound, and lighting. These factors, combined with our dedicated and caring staff, play a huge role in creating a high quality, organized, and memorable production.
Our adjudicated award system, utilizing the gemstones Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, & Sapphire, is the only one of its kind in the dance competition world. Each performance has the potential to earn the highest award possible, which enables the competitors to continually strive for excellence. In addition, our unique categories like the Dance Down, Interpretive, Spotlight Title, Triple Crown and Studio Achievement make Spotlight Dance Cup fun and exciting. Competitors at Spotlight Dance Cup always walk away with so much more than just a trophy!
Our National Championship Finals are a spectacular, one-of-a-kind event. In addition to providing an extraordinary competition, we always include a number of exciting extracurricular activities for our participants and their families such as banquets, theme parties, discount show tickets, master classes, special performances, and video showcases. This year our National Championship Finals will be held in Las Vegas, NV, Seaside, OR and Branson, MO. Any of these cities will provide limitless entertainment opportunities for the entire family, are centrally located, and possess affordable travel costs & accommodations.
