About this project

The video 
Fluid transitions are a mark of an accomplished dancer. Using instructional material I've refined through multiple workshops, I want to create a drill DVD that focuses on the spaces between movement and gives dancers a shortcut to fluid, effortless transitions.
The DVD, geared toward an intermediate to advanced audience, will focus on short sequences of stationary isolations strung together into seamless combinations. 

The plan Your pledges will help me pay for the filming and production of the DVD, for music rights, for cover photography and graphic design.
I've already developed the content for the DVD, and I plan to keep my costs as low as possible by doing the filming and production myself. 

NEW - Stretch Goals!
In case I am able to raise more than my $1500 minimum, I plan to invest in the following aspects of the project:
At $2250 I will hire a professional videographer and will start a marketing fund for the DVD.
At $3000 I will rent a theater space with better lighting for the shoot, and I will put more into the marketing fund for the DVD.
At $3750 I will hire someone to do the sound mixing and video editing for me, and I will put more into the marketing fund for the DVD.
I was expecting to have to do this on a shoestring, but now it looks like it's possible I may not have to. 

Testimonials
"I took a workshop in which transition drills were taught about a month ago. The descriptions, visualizations, and drills used to illustrate the concepts were extremely helpful to me in being able to improve my dance technique!" - Lynn H. Greensboro, NC
