Our recently completed documentary, “Dance Family” explores the passion, dedication and determination of four generations of dance instructors. After a century of dance lessons, recitals and competitions these talented teachers have built more than an empire, they have created a family that extends beyond a bloodline.

Dance Family has truly been our labor of love. Over the last five years we have followed students from the classroom through competitions. We have also learned what motivates their instructors to inspire and encourage them day after day.

Dance Family is planned to run the festival circuit as a short film. We have also created a feature length “Director’s Cut” for the students, parents and teachers who appear in the movie.

Please visit our Facebook page for more information about this film and future festival screenings.
