Where dance, design, and film collide.
“We strive to be a company that brings dance to the forefront of a digital world, to bring our humanity face to face with technology so that we might have a meaningful relationship…so that we might dance together instead of antagonize each other. ”
— MATT REEVES
Our mission is to bring dance, design, and film to all communities as a vibrant process capable of reflecting the extraordinary nature of the human experience.
