Essential Dance Stage Lighting Tips

Dancers bring the theatre to life with their dynamic, athletic art form when they perform on stage. Dance is an expression of moving bodies, as well as the patterns, shapes, and stories they reveal. Effective stage lighting contributes to the creation of art by highlighting movements at the appropriate times and framing each dance piece so that the audience has a complete theatrical experience.

For dance performances, stage position lighting highlights the action on stage while allowing the dancers to see their surroundings. As a lighting designer, you are responsible for assisting performers in performing their best while also providing the ambiance for a spectacular show.
