A young Atlantic Spotted dolphin whom we nicknamed "Scratchy" insistently tries to get the attention of the camera person (Benjamin Harley).

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.
