The Dancer

As we are fond of saying at Stories of Atlanta, there’s a reason for everything, you just have to know the story.  This week, we tell the tale of Dorothy Alexander, who, for as long as she could remember, dreamed of becoming a dancer.  It is a story of the power of passion and its ability to transform, not just a life, but an entire city.  In Dorothy’s case, it is the story of how a little girl’s dreams gave Atlanta one of its most treasured gifts.

Lance Russell is an Atlanta-based filmmaker and media communicator who, for over three decades, has been entrusted by clients to tell their stories. A seasoned producer with an innate ability to cut to the heart of the matter, Lance’s instincts are tailor-made for today’s “media bite” culture. Brief, poignant and always entertaining, Lance’s current passion is bringing Atlanta’s colorful and inspiring past to life with his “rest of the story” style video series, Stories of Atlanta. “History’s best communicators,” says Lance, “have always been storytellers. It’s in our DNA. ‘Once upon a time’ is how we got to where we are now.”
