Spot TV

We have partnered with Spot TV to bring you a live stream of your child’s classes at your fingertips, literally!

Just a couple of simple steps to get started:

  1. Go to on computer to create an account. We recommend you use Google Chrome. You may also register on a mobile device, iPad, tablet, etc. by going to the Spot TV Mobile app.
  2. Choose Parent (or Relative), Choose name of studio, Click next step, Enter basic info, Click next step, Enter child info, Select class or classes, Click next step, Create User & Password, agree to Rules & regulations & Click Submit.
  3. You will see a message stating that your account is pending approval. In most cases request will be approved quickly. Once approved you will receive another email to log into your account to view class. You are allowed to view class (es) that your dancer (s) are enrolled in during the class day & time only.

Creating your account with Spot TV ensures that you have safe and secure access to the classes on your child’s schedule. When it’s time for class, just log in to Spot TV and start watching!

Note: If you are wanting to give a relative permission to observe your dancer(s) while they are in class, please email me their names along with name of dancer (s) they wish to observe ( If I receive a request and I do not recognize the name, the account will be on hold or denied until I am notified by dance parent. Spot TV does allow unlimited users, but they must be attached to your account.

There is a security feature built into Spot TV that will log users out if not active for a specific amount of time. Also, the cameras may log in a little bit late into the class time (during class change overs, taking attendance, changing shoes, etc.) & may log out a little bit earlier than the end of the class time (dancers exiting out the back door & parent pick up). Like how Netflix asks you if you are still watching. There may be times you will have to log back in if timed out.

The account may also be put on hold if log in is entered incorrectly 3 times. For your dancer’s privacy, Android doesn’t allow screen shots and iPhone will lock you out if you take a screen shot.

If you have more than one dancer, you may switch back & forth between cameras without having to log out.
We ask that you please log out at the end of your dancer’s class time.

If you have any questions on accessing the live stream, the Spot TV team is there to help!
Call 877-722-6358 or Email

Techniques in Motion Dance School Takes Action to Protect Children in Our Communities!

Wilmington, NC, May 26, 2023 – The Carousel Center (TCC) is proud to announce the Techniques in Motion (TIM) has been awarded the distinction of Partner in Prevention! TIM leadership has made a bold commitment to eliminating opportunities for abuse to occur within their dance studio by completing thorough child sexual abuse prevention training, conducting environmental scans of their facilities to assess for risk, and implementing effective child protection policies.

The Partner in Prevention designation is awarded by the nonprofit, Darkness to Light, to organizations that take the necessary steps to protect children from child sexual abuse. Partner in Prevention was created as a national standard to help parents and caregivers recognize organizations that take child protection seriously to prevent child sexual abuse. It also serves to educate the public on the prevalence of child sexual abuse in their communities and build demand for prevention efforts. You can find a list of our local community Partners in Prevention by visiting

“Children are our most precious resource. Together, we can change how this community responds to child abuse.”

– Amy Feath, Executive Director of The Carousel Center




Kindness Through Dance

TIM is promoting monthly studio events to help those in need to involve children & encourage them to treat others with love & respect. Random acts of kindness are on the rise. If we can all be gentle, caring & helpful to those around us we might just encourage our dancers to become kindness sharers themselves. The focus is on love, support helping hands, kindness & generosity.
“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness” ~ William Arthur
Former TIM Dance student, Ansley Strong, was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, which is a RARE liver cancer that only affects infants and children under the age of three. We are trying all we can do to help her and her family.
