FAME DANCE COMPANY IS VERY EXCITED TO INTRODUCE OUR FILM PRODUCER AND DIRECTOR SEAN HALE FROM LAS VEGAS TO PRODUCE AND DIRECT FDC’S UPCOMING MUSIC VIDEOS IN EDMONTON, LOS ANGELES AND NUEVO VALLARTA, MEXICO.
A BIT ABOUT SEAN...
I’m Sean Hale and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I started making short films using stop motion animation at the age of 8 years old. After experimenting with live action, 7 years and many short films later, I went through a year course for film my freshman year of high school, took on a major role in the student television network for a semester, and also have been sophomore class president at Bishop Gorman High school.
I had also taken a short but intensive program at New York Film Academy, and released a viral experimental short film titled “Skeleton House” about human trafficking, revolving around the chaotic ideals of corrupted love and loss of innocence. Starting with that major short and a few before it, I lean toward creating films that raise awareness for serious and dark issues in a way that attempts to appeal to the audience by being both raw and beautiful - taking dark and twisted themes and using them in a alluring and shocking way.
Because of my intrigue for serious and global issues, I take many opportunities to volunteer from my own community to the poorest of the poor in other countries. I have volunteered in the most destitute locations of Mexico and most recently in Kingston, Jamaica, where I stayed for a week and worked with an organization called ‘Mustard Seed.’ This is a company that caters to a series of communities taking in extremely mentally and physically handicapped people, along with underaged pregnant girls and those living with HIV.
This year, I am starting my second major film production titled “Seven Souls,” and am excited to work internationally as a film producer and director with the Canadian dance company “Fame”.

Every year, Fame take's it's students to a diverse array of performance opportunities including festivals, competitions, fashion shows, charity projects, music videos, school performances, sports halftime shows and demonstrations.
Some of these projects are local and others have us travel outside of the country. Examples include performing at the United Nations in New York, several performances at Disneyland Anaheim and Florida, performing at the 5-star Mexican resort Riu Palace in Puerto Vaillarta, performing regularly in Los Angeles at Celebrate Recovery as well as Kidz Jams in the projects of LA. We have also produced several music videos filmed in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Fame always strives to offer a wide variety of experiences for our students - from the performer that enjoys the thrill of the audience up to the dancer/model who wishes a professional career in dance, acting, or modelling.
On it's 20th anniversary, Fame is officially opening FDC International, a program dedicated to the intensive student enrolled in our company program wishing the extra challenge of competing and/or performing at an International level.
Fame has participated in numerous International events over the past 20 years with great success and we are very excited to brand this program this year, wanting to inspire our students to achieve this level of performance, hard work and dedication to the art form.
This program is by audition only and dancers will be recommended to International events.
