Calpulli Mexican Dance Company

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company was founded in 2003 with a mission to “celebrate the rich diversity of Mexican and Mexican-American cultural heritage through dance-based programming including live music.” We’ve worked with them since 2008, making broadcast commercials, filming performances and special events, and in schools where their Arts-in-Education programs thrive. The vibrancy and impact of Calpulli's work not only educates, but thoroughly entertains, and we are thrilled to help them light up faces in communities across the country.

Capturing dance in photo and video is an art form in itself. After nearly 20 years of producing dance in NYC, I can confidently say Nic Petry and Dancing Camera are spectacular talents and resources for the performing arts world. Dancing Camera does what few others take the time to do—understand our vision. From performances to arts-in-education, their video documentation captures who we are not only through their unique perspective but through our own; yielding video experiences that we are very proud to share and that bring us to pause and enjoy. The fact that Dancing Camera is able to create dynamic video for diverse genres of dance and dance topics is evidence of their ability to listen and take to heart what the artist seeks to transmit. Thank you Nic. Thank you Dancing Camera.
