Director Statement

Moment Of Silence was a big honor as it marks Blake Zelesnikar’s debut as a choreographer. This dance piece features two of the best dancers in the industry. Normally seen on the broadway stage, Jessica Lee Goldyn and Zelesnikar set the bar for this type of dance. Being on set to capture two of the best to dance this style was a directing dream and I hope you enjoy the storytelling as well as the passion behind the movement.
