Let There Be Light: How to Set up Lighting for Your Next Dance or Acrobat Show

Let There Be Light: How to Set up Lighting for Your Next Dance or Acrobat Show

When dancers or acrobats perform on stage, they bring the theater to life with a dynamic, athletic art form. Dance and acrobats express moving bodies and all the patterns, shapes, and stories they show. Effective stage lighting contributes to that art-making, highlighting movements at the right moments and framing each dance piece so the audience receives a complete theatrical experience.

Stage position lighting for dance performances highlights the action on stage while letting the dancers see their surroundings. As a lighting designer, you have the pivotal job of helping performers dance their best while providing the ambiance for a spectacular show.

Lighting a dance performance involves much more than helping audiences see. Dance lighting is an intimate collaboration among color, emotion and the moving body. When you design a lighting concept, you contribute to the art unfolding onstage.
