I founded my dance video production company when I realized that all of my college dance footage was fuzzy, far away and completely unusable. There was clearly a need for better quality dance video, and since I had broadcast experience in addition to dance training — it felt like the perfect passion project.
Now, Nel Shelby Productions has grown from a one-woman show to a thriving operation with an excellent team of creative videographers, editors, marketing minds, client relations and project managers. We are still deeply dedicated to the preservation of dance through documentation of live performances, but we also focus on digital marketing and promotion with fully edited marketing reels, documentaries and dance films.

I was so impressed and inspired working with Nel and her team. They were professional, open, and engaging. In short, they brought my vision to life. Stars of American Ballet can now be seen as game-changer. We are forever grateful!Daniel Ulbricht
