"It's a great opportunity for people who can't travel to see the events in person to experience the action first hand, as it happens, from anywhere in the world," adds Julie Stadler, co-founder, "and we are excited it to bring it to the masses."
Lighting designer Mark Carver used GLP Impression Spot Ones, GLP Impression X4S, Martin MAC Auras, Chauvet Rogue R2 Hybrid Beams, Clay Paky Sharpys and ETC Source 4 fixtures along with hombres Truss Structure to give the commentators’ space ‘shape and presence.’

“With this being the kick-off event for Dance Network, I knew it was important to create a dynamic look,” said Carver. “We had to make sure we were true to the feel of the new brand by keeping the look fresh and contemporary.”
“The Bandit Team was great,” added Carver, noting support from Bandit’s Vice President Mike Golden and Project Manager Matt King. “With lighting director Craig Richter programming and Andy French as Lead Tech, we had a very successful shoot.”
