About Spotlight Performing Arts Academy

About The Owner

Angela Gordon Mills grew up in Laurens SC and was very active in music and theatre as a child. She was in both chorus, band and drama in both high school and college. She also participated in shows at the Laurens County Community Theatre and The Carousel Playhouse. After moving to Charlotte in 2002, Angela honed her business skills as a Store Manager for Music and Arts Center but education was never far from her mind. After leaving Music and Arts Center, Angela worked as a director for tutoring programs that supported children throughout the NC while teaching music and theatre in the evenings. In July, she decided to venture into business on her own and thus came Spotlight Performing Arts Academy. Angela describes the opening of Spotlight as "meant to be". Her goal is to make Spotlight a place where everyone can come and follow their dreams.


Angela has received her BA in Vocal Performance and Arts Management from Newberry College and a Masters Certification in Songwriting and Music Business from Berklee College of Music. In addition to operating Spotlight, she has also directed the Senior Choral and Arts Group at Levine Senior Center and teaches Chorus and Music Appreciation at a high school level. Angela loves to continue to perform whenever she can.

Spotlight Performing Arts Academy offers music instruction in piano, voice, guitar, bass, percussion, banjo, mandolin, brass, woodwinds and string instruments. We also offer different types of group ensembles.

If acting is for you, we offer private and group lessons as well as classes for all ages in both theatre and film performance. Spotlight also casts several productions throughout the year!
