BB Dakota sent Petra Collins, NYC based artist/curator, her close friends, Julia and Mayan, and her sister, Anna, on a roadtrip through the Deep South to explore and document the importance of dance as a means of creative expression for young girls across America. Petra is the founder and curator of The Ardorous, an online art collective showcasing work by emerging female artists.
This was a two-part project. In Petra’s 3-part documentary, “Making Space”, she focuses her lens on several young dancers and their relationship to their art as a vehicle for developing personal identity. The 5-part “On the Road” series documents the crews travels and the process of filming “Making Space.”

New York is a bustling metropolis with more than 11,500 unique street corners. Phil is a guileless, friendly small-town transplant who is deathly afraid of jaywalking: Don’t Walk signs are his kryptonite.
