Spotlight was started in 1995 to provide an exciting learning environment for children interested in Theatre and the Performing Arts, we have Saturday classes in Middlesbrough and Saltburn.
Spotlight is fun, friendly, and gives young people the chance to shine in which ever way they choose, encouraging new friendships whilst learning new skills.
We believe the creative arts can help benefit all who get involved, whether it be to pursue a career within performing arts or just as a hobby and to have fun on a Saturday. Many of our members stay with us their entire school life, and its rewarding to see them develop into confident young adults.
Our aim is for our members to
Build self confidence and self esteem while having fun performing.
Increase their creativity and personal expression through drama activities
Learn and improve dance ability in a variety of styles.
Help increase confidence with singing in a group and solo.
Improve co-ordination, balance and rhythm through attending dance and movement sessions
