The Dance

Our actors, Clint Murphy and Rita O’ Connell, received choice tutelage from choreographer, dancer and director of the Academy of Performing Arts, Miss Amber Vasquez. If you are someone who is interested in and engaged by process, and watching moving parts synthesize, Troy beautifully captured Clint and Rita’s private dance session with Amber. This recorded practice, which relates to our film’s black-and-white slow-dance sequence, flowers and unfolds with a natural narrative arc, culminating in an exquisite final shot.
