Through Our Lens

Dance Cinematography is an integral part of Dance On Detroit. It embodies the narrative the director creates between the choreographer, the camera, and the dancer.

This technique is dynamic and innovative; an innovative style of motion picture capture that combines high-definition digital film equipment and years of dance training.

Through our lens, we give our viewers the dancer's perspective.
