Spotlight School of Dance, Bournemouth Dorset

Established by our Principal, Mrs. Lorraine Hall, in 1983,  Spotlight School of Dance has always been a warm, welcoming and inclusive school which has made it a priority to put the happiness and well-being of every single pupil first.  


Mrs. Hall holds a teaching diploma with the Royal Academy of Dance and British Theatre Dance Association, and children are offered classes in Classical Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz, Contemporary, Acro, Street Dance and Musical Theatre, ages 24 months – adults.


Our mission is to provide excellent technical training while making classes fun and exciting.

All pupils are given the opportunity to take examinations, medal- tests, workshops with leading industry professionals, Competitions and so much more.  Senior pupils are able to study and train for dance teacher qualifications if that is the career path they want to follow.


Each year we present a fun and exciting show for every single pupil to take part in, if they wish, at Pavilion Dance Theatre, Bournemouth.  This is the highlight of our year, when our pupils, from babies to adults, get to perform on a professional stage in front of their parents, families and members of the pubic.  Show day is a magical experience for pupils and staff alike.
