“In 2019 my team filmed a short documentary featuring Kim and A Chance to Dance. I just have not been able to let them go. Kim, her daughter Reagan, and all of the dancers and parents just really touched my heart…I felt like I wanted to do something more.

I reached out to Kim back in December of 2020 about possibly filming another project. I wanted to focus more on dance this time. I had it in my head that we could use this big empty warehouse and make it look really beautiful and cinematic for them.

Thank you to the entire crew who donated their time and skills to make this piece come to life! Special Thanks to Kim, ACTD, and all of the parents for letting us share their story.” – R

Emma and Ava are students at A Chance to Dance for special needs in Charlotte, NC.
