Project Details
Located at Sunset Cultural Center, has an audience of over 2,300 including a free performance for 700 children. The free performance is targeted to South and North County schools in which 51% or more of the students are considered “socioeconomically disadvantaged.” For the second year in a row, Monterey County Pops! orchestra provided live music for our production’s dancers and audience members. Dance Kids is the only local production to feature a live orchestra for the full-length ballet.
Every year House of 8 Media produced the live theatre video recordings for the families of the Nutcracker. This year we produced a mini-documentary as well as producing the entire Nutcracker show in VR 180 degrees (3D).
Michael Made it Happen for Dance Kids. We gave him a new idea that incorporated Interviews and a narrative about our outreach program to 650 title 1 children who see DKMC Nutcracker Performance for Free. From our outline, he arranged the interview, cut in footage of the kids, cut in still shots, edited and produced. We used in social media and our results were amazing. New donors who saw for the first time that we have an outreach program and a wonderful new friend that was thankful our campaign of These are the Faces of Dance Kids shows the diversity of our community. The performing arts has no barriers. We are grateful Michael and his talent was able to show our true mission. Thank you.
