Director Statement

This project took me and my friend, Molly Stanfield, an entire year to finish. During this process, we ran into many creative and technical hardships, and it was countless of sleepless nights of hardwork brought us this film, which we are incredibly proud of. One thing I learned from this journey is that stories are everywhere waiting for us to tell. It doesn't have to bear with profound or deep messages. The sincere relationship between this dance teacher and her students who are also my dear friends truly moved me and the audience, and I believe this is a story worth telling.
