RYDA at Spotlight 2023


Due to the increase in the number of dance schools who wish to be involved in Spotlight this year, we will be running 2 separate shows. 1 on Sunday 26th March and 1 on Monday 27th March.

Each show will have 1 performance only, an evening show at 7pm

The following RYDA groups will be performing in each show

SHOW ONE – Sunday 26th March 7pm
Step 2 It, RYDA All Stars and Small Stars, Dad’s

SHOW TWO – Monday 27th March 7pm
RYDC (Advanced street dance), Adults Contemporary, Adults Street Dance, Year 7+ Contemporary

Times for Rehearsal

The dress rehearsals will be as follows:

Show 2 – Sunday 26th March – 9-1pm

Show 1 – Sunday 26th March – 1-5pm

During this time, each group will have the opportunity to perform their piece on stage and discuss with the lighting and sound technicians any specific arrangements they wish for their performance.


On arrival to the theatre, all dancers and staff are to sit in the audience. Each group will then perform their dance. Whilst a group is performing, all other schools will remain in the audience so they have the opportunity to view the performances.

Once all groups have completed their pieces, the finale will be organised (if appropriate) that involves all performers. On completion of this, if we have time, we will do a final run through of the show so performers can practice moving from their changing room to the stage etc.

Transport & Drop off/Collection Procedures 

All performers will be responsible for their own transport to and from the dress rehearsal and shows. Performers can make their way to the stage door on arrival for the dress rehearsals.

There will be a short break from 5pm to 6.30pm between show one dress rehearsal and the start of the show at 7pm.  All students will need to be collected from the theatre between these times unless otherwise agreed with me.  If you give consent for your daughter to make their own way into Stamford for this break, I will need written consent from a parent to confirm this.  The theatre building maybe locked during this time and chaperones not available in dressing rooms so please don’t assume you can stay in the building!

For the evening shows, RYDA Small Stars and All Stars will meet their chaperones at our meeting point on Broad Street between Willoughbys and Barclay Bank. You will need to arrive at 6.30pm for the show to start at 7pm.  RYDA Stars will then need to be collected from the same meeting point at approximately 8.15pm. All other performers can come straight to the stage door 30 minute prior to the show starting.
