Gurus of Dance musical "The Spotlight"

Gurus of Dance is a very famous dancing and acting academy here in the bay area, who presented San Francisco's first Bollywood musical featuring G-Squad professional actors and dancers.

His success comes with a price as he faces many trials and tribulations. The story revolves around this person to see if he will be able to handle his success or will he loose his way in life and crumble to the pressure.
