Hard work. Pays off.
Hard work. Sweat. Endurance. Pain and injuries. You’ve trained your body and your mind to let go. The choreography is fantastic. Your emotions and movements are flawless. All those dance classes have paid off. All for this moment.
Capture it perfectly. Forever.
To show emotions, you need great angles, close ups, and amazing lighting. To stand out, you need a unique location for your visual story. You also need professional videographers with the best cameras who have experience filming athletic movement. We are a team that knows how to produce real dance films. We will put you in the right place, at the right time of day, capture your dance perfectly, and mix it beautifully. So your family can see it, forever.
Magical lighting. Beautiful locations.
We scout and reserve the best locations with an eye for the right blend of natural light and elegant shadows. On the day of shooting, we do a walkthrough of your dance. We make technical and artistic decisions in regards to lens choice, exposure, lighting, composition, filters, camera movement, and colour-grading. The right decisions create visual harmony between cinematography and choreography.
Emotion inspired takes. The right angles.
We shoot your movements from one angle. Then another. Then another. Moving in. Moving out. Moving as you move to create depth and warmth. Your moves are technically beautiful. And your face reveals the emotions of the music. We capture close ups of your expressions. A tight shot at just the right time shows your connection to the song through your dance. We get every shot ensuring you get the perfect take. It's hard work for the dancer and the production team. But, it ensures that we have every option in post-production to pick the best clip.
The best clip. Chosen every few seconds.
Our post-production editing process is similar to a full-length feature film. We bring in all the footage. We line them up and select only the best frame every 2-3 seconds. Then, we do it again for the next 2-3 seconds. Then again. And again. All the way to the end. We time the dancers movements and frame changes to match the beat of the song. Heighten the excitement. Take the viewer on a visual musical journey, with a full-length dance video that shows the best of you at every single moment.

Questions? Here are some we commonly get.
Do you provide the choreography?
No. We need you to come prepared with a fully rehearsed routine that is performance ready. If we film your child and they do a different routine every take, we will have to invoice you extra as this doubles the amount of time it takes our video editors to edit. It also puts the responsibility of choreographing a dance onto our editors, which many do not have a background in dance.
Can I use a routine I didn't choreograph?
Yes. However, we like to give the creator credit, so please ask permission from the person/ school responsible for the choreography before filming. We like to put their name in the credits.
Can two dancers be in the video?
Yes. The dance video is for solo or duo dancers.
Can more than two dancers be in the video?
At this time, we only offer our dance video with one or two dancers. We are exploring a dance video option for dance troupes. If you are interested in a dance video with 3 or more dancers, please reach out and let us know.
Do I get to pick the filming location?
No. The only way we can get through 20-30 videos in 4 days is by grouping them in locations based on the genre of song they select. This doesn't mean every video looks the same. We only select locations that have a variety of backgrounds so we can get different looking videos for each kid.
