The first clip from Dolphin Dance Project's (dolphin-dance.org) new work-in-progress, featuring multiple human dancers and wild Atlantic Spotted Dolphins.
This clip features Kathleen Fisher (performer/collaborator), Chisa Hidaka (director) and a wild Atlantic Spotted Dolphin. It was shot and edited by producer Benjamin Harley, with music by Morgan Fisher.

Dolphin Dance Project works only with wild dolphins. Dolphins are 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 is never any attempt to interact if dolphins were resting or showed any sign of annoyance or disinterest.
