Announcing the hosts for 2013 Spotlight Awards!

The Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center announces the hosts for the 2013 Spotlight Awards!

Congratulations to Tristan Braboy, Helen Foe and Spence Gabriel who will share the stage as emcees for the evening.

Heartfelt thanks to all the students who came out to the auditions. They all did a fantastic job!

For the audition, students were asked to share a story about their experience in the performing arts. From funny and light-hearted to heart-warming, each story was moving and significant.

Their similar stories of how studying the performing arts has helped them truly gives meaning and purpose to every single class offered at the Conservatory.

“It was a fun audition that reminded us of why we love working here,” said Claire Olson, dance department manager.

Whether studying a script, learning songs in a musical theater class, or expressing themselves through dance, the students shared how they changed, coped, grew and became more confident through their classes at the Conservatory.

Thanks to our dedicated faculty for sharing their talents and touching the lives of their students every day.

And thanks to all of our students for sharing your time and talent with us!

All students are invited to participate in the Spotlight Awards on Thurs., May 23, 2013. Come celebrate your success!
