Spotlight on Dance (SOD) began in a small storefront on South Plainfield Avenue in South Plainfield, NJ in 1990. Carolyn Stefanchik opened and has successfully grown the dance studio since 1990. As of June 2015, Shannon Battiste and Gina Vohden are the proud owners of Spotlight on Dance and continue to enhance and enrich dance experiences and oppurtunities for the children of South Plainfield and surrounding towns. SOD is proud of the literally thousands of Central Jersey youth that have passed through our doors. Our alumni have gone on to professional performing careers as well as attaining dance and education degrees from distinguished universities. > SOD has two rooms with floating hardwood floors, ample parking and a Waiting Room with 1-way windows for parents to observe class. > Our tuition and family plans are among the most affordable in New Jersey. Student tuition is due in quarterly installments and full year prepayments are also available at a discounted rate. > Classes begin in September and run through Memorial Day which allows families to get an early " jump" on summer activities! A full range of classes are also offered during the Summer Fun Session. > Most students choose to perform in the Annual Spring Student Recital which traditionally runs 2 hours in length with reserved seat tickets affordably priced. > Our Teacher/Student ratio is low to create an atmosphere where dancers receive maximum attention and individualized correction. Young dancers are grouped by age to offer them the most specific instruction based on where they are developmentally and socially. We offer separate classes for 3 year olds, 4 year olds, Kindergarteners and First Graders because we know each specific age group is quite different in so far as what we can expect them to do and how long they can maintain their focus. As students mature, they are grouped in classes based on their ability.
