The Pacific Spinner Dolphins in this film are wild; their participation in the dance was completely voluntary. They were not rewarded or coerced by anything other than their own curiosity and joy to interact with intelligent, playful members of another species - just like the human dancer. Recognizing that we are guests in the dolphins' environment, the filmmakers followed a strict code of etiquette. There was never any attempt to interact if dolphins were resting or showed any sign of annoyance or disinterest.

This film is intended to inspire increased respect for wild dolphins and concern for their well-being and their environment.
