Spotlight Dance Center opened its doors in January of 1996 with one dance studio and four teachers. Now entering our 25th season, the dance center has expanded to include seven studios, over thirteen professional teachers, Spotlight Entertainment Company/Spotlight Dance Connection all house in a brand new facility.
It’s founders, Peter and Margaret Anthony both have extensive training and performance backgrounds including several years at Disney as dance captains for the Beauty & The Beast show and the Spirit of Pocahontas at the MGM studios. It is their love for the art of dance that inspired them to open Spotlight Dance Center. Margaret Anthony has been teaching ballet for over 30 years and thrives on the opportunity to teach ballet and pass the techniques taught her by her legendary teacher Thomas Armor of the Miami Conservatory. Peter Anthony teaches a strong jazz and hip-hop technique. With a BFA from the New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida, Peter’s professionalism is derived from years of training, performing, acting, teaching, choreographing, and producing. His credits include several motion picture and television appearances, choreographer of an international television show in Miami, Florida, convention production and talent agent to name a few. Peter is recently choreographed the “Dooley and Pal” show; a children’s television series filmed out of the MGM studios. Peter is currently choreographing "The Gina D's Kids Club" airing on PAX Network.
