This August, Capital Dance Project presents the first ever
CDP Digital Series: Made in Sacramento!
Due to COVID-19, we have postponed our 6th annual Behind the Barre performances to August 2021. We look forward to bringing the highly acclaimed program to the Sofia, Home of B Street Theatre when it is safe for our audience and artists. Until then, we take on the challenge of bringing new works to our community safely with perseverance and creativity. This summer, we explore dance, choreography, and our vibrant Sacramento community in new and reimagined ways - on film!
CDP Digital Series: Made in Sacramento brings 11 new creations to your home, available FREE on this page and our social media platforms. Choreographed and performed by CDP artists, and in collaboration with filmmaker Brandon Manning, the series celebrates our Sacramento community with featured local artists, musicians, and city landmarks. Bi-weekly releases of the short films being on August 26th, followed by a special full viewing of the series on October 2nd. Stay tuned for details, and follow us on social media for behind the scenes looks at the creative process!

Meet the Filmmaker
Brandon Manning is a local Sacramento artist specializing in the production of high quality visual media from film to print. In the business of making pictures for over eight years now, Brandon has a unique insight into what connects with people and how to share real stories earnestly. His favorite projects are those that combine real humans doing real good in their community with the support of major organizations that magnify the impact of that work many times over.
Along with commercial work, Brandon collaborates with local artists, musicians, and dancers to produce content that lifts everyone's spirit - whatever their class, creed, color, gender, sexuality, or otherwise. Sacramento is a vibrant community to which Brandon is grateful to belong.
Having found his passion late in life after a series of (mis)adventures, Brandon is consumed with creating and living in order to better himself and the world around him - learning what that might mean a little more every day. His secret/not-so-secret, passion is making photographs of the majestic world in which we live, hoping to remind all who view them that we are all one - with each other, and our planet.
This is Brandon's 5th year collaborating with Capital Dance Project. For those who have attended CDP's annual Behind the Barre performances, you will remember his work from the stunning introductory films shown before each piece.
