Dance Spirit
and Limelight Teamwear are excited to announce our 2021 Future Star winners! Every year, DS partners with competitions to recognize dancers with stellar talent, stage presence, and ability, and this year’s standouts delivered to the max. Each of these fabulous up-and-comers received a beautiful jacket from Limelight to help them shine their brightest. “We believe that high-quality team wear gives dancers a boost of confidence and comfort, both of which are so important to have dancers performing their best,” Limelight says. “We’re delighted to support the growth of the up-and-coming leaders in this industry.”
