Summer Spotlight 2020

To Our Summer Spotlighters and Families:

Considering all available information and circumstances, we have made the very difficult decision not to hold Summer Spotlight 2020 on the Troy campus this year. While we’ve all been looking forward to the fun this year (like we have for the past 12 years), we always want to be 100% sure that we can offer a high-quality experience while also keeping our Spotlighters and Staff safe and healthy. We hope you understand – YOU are the most important part of Summer Spotlight, and that is what has driven our decision-making at every turn.

The camps we had planned for you – NEW Circus Arts Camp, NEW Comicamp, Creative Drama Camp, Performance Intensive, Tech Intensives, and NEW Teachers Institute – will be back in full force for Summer 2021!

In the meantime, we hope to be able to share with our younger Spotlighters some online content we’re working on – some fun creative activities you can do along with us while you’re at home. Please send us lots of pictures and videos of YOU being creative! We want to see you shine!

For our Spotlighters who would be “graduating” from Creative Drama Camp this year (age 13), we will EXTEND your eligibility for one year so that you can have your extra-special last year next year.

For our Trumbauer Intensive Scholarship winners, we will EXTEND your award eligibility so that you can take advantage of this opportunity in the Summer of 2021.

We will miss you terribly…but that just makes us look forward to next year EVEN MORE! See you at Summer Spotlight 2021!!

What are YOU doing in July?

Troy University Department of Theatre and Dance presents its annual Summer Spotlight Series in July of each year for young people looking to grow and develop their interests and talents in the Arts! Since 2009, we've been providing a quality experience at an affordable cost for young artists throughout Alabama and the southeast.

Spotlight on Dance and Creative Drama Camp

Our youth camps are perfect for young creative minds and bodies who want to explore and play! Spend a week on the TROY campus learning about performance and stagecrafts, and finish out the week with a showcase for family and friends. An extra-special treat for our Creative Drama Spotlighters – a Disney KIDS musical performed for the public!

Performance and Tech Intensives

Our Intensives are not camps - they're a chance to immerse in all aspects of performance and technical theatre for six wonderful days on the TROY campus alongside other talented and committed young artists. Spend a week with our visiting celebrity guest artists and TROY faculty and student staff, and leave with greater experience, exposure, and confidence…not to mention friendships and memories to last you through the year. Recommended for serious theatre and dance students.



Day of Dance 2020

Day of Dance celebrates the tenth anniversary of DANCE at Troy University. Join the Department of Theatre and Dance for master classes taught by both current faculty and dance alumni working professionally from L.A. to New York. Experience this diverse group of master teachers and help us celebrate ten years of dance excellence.
