The Dance Video Collection is a series of dance concept videos produced, directed, choreographed, and edited by Marc Generoso. Adapted from Marc’s competitive studio dance pieces from Vibrant Dance Studios (Nanaimo, BC) and Urban Dance Connection (Campbell River, BC) into cinematic short films, the collection consists of 10 independent dance films that merge dance, film, and narrative.

This project began in 2010 with 10 exclusive dance numbers from Vibrant Dance Studios and was later released in 2012. The project was reprised in 2013 with a new set of dance pieces that were released in 2014. This is the third and final installment of this unique experience.
In his graduating year in film school as well as his 13th and final year as a dedicated dance teacher and choreographer, Marc has amalgamated the art forms of film and dance to create long lasting memories of his experiences with these two supportive dance communities.

Mitch Rowland, Justin MacGregor & Ryan Elhorn

Jacksun Fryer (Forrest Gump Jr.) played the DJ at the high school dance. FnA was his classmates for his film. Jacksun was also one of the nurses (along with Jack Harrison) in the live/competition version of this dance.

Mitch Rowland and Justin MacGregor (who play the nurses in the film) are in the same film program as Marc and Cuyler at Capilano University.

When FnA enter the high school dance, the confetti cannon was originally supposed to be a flock of doves flying behind them in slow motion. The doves were a go until the afternoon of the shoot. Doves are not supposed to be released indoors and at night (because they will not come down or come back). The idea was quickly changed to the confetti cannon.

There were no rehearsals with the kids in regards to the dialogue for the shoot. With the exception of a few pacing adjustments, all the characters and their delivery were established by the kids themselves.
