Spotlight Productions Celebrates in Style This Year at Symphony Space on Broadway

In honor of NYFW Spotlight decided to incorporate exotic styles from around the world.

It is one of the only theatrical shows in New York that welcomes a variety of over 250 performers both young and Elite , from all backgrounds and in all style including: Ballroom, Latin, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Ballet and most recently Indian Dance. Spotlight believes in creating a platform for everyone to shine. The company was founded almost a decade ago by Masha Lakhter who is the CEO. She not only produces the show each year but, is a performer as well.

She has often said “I am living the life of my dreams”. This is the very attitude that is rooted in the elaborate productions each year which inspires everyone to bring their best and most authentic selves. Spotlight promotes thought provoking numbers that revolve around high energy and creativity. The theater provides an atmosphere that is bright, bold and booming with sounds and stories that fill the soul.

For the first time ever, Varsha Naik joined our organization with Navrang Dance Academy. It was pure magic witnessing this Indian Group. They brought such a vibrant and colorful presence to our show. The stage was illuminated by their beautiful spirits, costumes and movement. The love of dance was quite visible and our audience of 800 spectators was left with memorable impressions of style and grace.

“It’s the dream for any dancer to perform on this prestigious stage and I find myself extremely lucky to have gotten the chance. I would like to thank Spotlight Production for organizing “Dancing in the Spotlight”. Every piece of dance was spectacular, colorful and fascinating on this stage.”says varsha

I must say the inspiration came from none other than the famous Bollywood choreographer Sandip Soparrkar. I’d like to express my gratitude to him for encouraging me and my team to cross our limits and do something extraordinary.

This was a huge opportunity for us to showcase one of the many Indian Dance forms and be a part of the bigger dance community,” varsha said .
