While Valley Videography is locally recognized as a premier wedding video production company, we have also been preserving dance recital memories for several years.
As a dance studio owner, choosing Valley Videography to record your performance means you'll be able to offer your clients professionally edited DVDs - with minimal effort on your part. If required, Valley Videography can handle the entire project, from creating order forms and handling payments, through shipping the DVD's to your clients.
As a parent, a DVD produced by Valley Videography ensures your child's performance will be captured beautifully with a subtle mix of close ups and wide stage shots, presented on a DVD which includes chapter marks at the begining of each dance number for easy navigation.
This video is absolutely amazing. ... As always I am so pleased to have used Valley Videography to capture our 2nd annual dance recital. The parents are beyond thrilled at how clear everything is. And numerous dads said it was totally worth the money to be able to sit back and watch the show live instead of trying to video it themselves.

What makes Valley Videography's Recital Videos Unique:
Valley Videography's Justin Schaffer films recitals with both the creative vision and technical expertise necessary to produce a video that is enjoyable to watch, and artistically blends performer close-ups with full group shots.
As a drummer for practically his whole life (the years he can remember, anyway), Justin was active in the music and performing arts programs throughout his years in the East Penn School District. He has performed in an award winning Drumline, Marching Bands, Concert Bands, Jazz Bands, Percussion Ensembles, Pit Orchestras, and DCA Drum Corps. In addition to his own time performing, he brings years of experience attending his older sister's dance recitals while growing up. (And later, the recitals of his high-school sweetheart [now wife].) (And then those of her sister.) (And then those of his own two daughters.)
Shortly after graduating from University of Delaware with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Justin started Valley Videography in 2003 while looking for a creative outlet to his Engineering job, which lacked, well, creativity. Valley Videography quickly evolved into a well respected wedding videography company in the Lehigh Valley, growing primarily through glowing referrals from past clients.
So It was a natural fit in 2008 when the performing arts studio where Justin's two daughters attend asked him to provide the Video and DVD service for their recitals. In addition to filming the studio's recitals ever since, he performs supplementary audio/video work for the studio including recordings for production numbers, videotaping performances for college applications and contest entries, and even VHS to DVD transfer of old, old recitals.
It is with this artistic background in performing arts and technical background in engineering that Justin of Valley Videography strives to provide your studio and performers with the highest quality possible DVD's: Camera changes in time with the music; Knowing when to show a wide shot or when its safe to catch a close up; Proper exposure so as to not overexpose the performers under the varying stage lights; and finally, a customized DVD Case Sleeve showcasing the key information from the performance.
