Media Team

Media TeamThe moment you step into a StarQuest competition, you are surrounded by beautiful media. From the program to the videos on the screen, Jess and our Media Team creates the visually stunning world around us! Join us as Jess tells us all about it!


What does the media team do?

The media team is responsible for the creation of all the visual content that is presented on-site at our events and social media platforms. This includes promotional videos, photos, and graphics for website & print. Have you seen our lasted video on Fall Arrival? That’s us!


Media TeamWhy is your position so important when planning for the new season?

We create an all new look for every competition season in order to keep everything looking fresh. With each new season, we want to match what’s trendy, while also maintaining the look of our brand. This is important because design trends are constantly evolving, but we still want to convey our mission and vision for the company.


 What do you love about working for StarQuest?

My favorite part is living through the experiences that are shared at our events by the dancers, studio owners, and parents. By capturing photos and videos of these moments, we are able to relive them over and over again. It makes me feel more connected with the dance community, even if I’m not a skilled dancer and don’t have any rhythm. Also, when I’m on the road building my library of footage to use through the year, I love meeting the dancers, studio owners, and parents. It’s amazing to witness the talent, dedication, and connection shared between studios, family and StarQuest staff.


Media TeamHow does your job affect a dancer’s experience on-site at one of our competitions?

Visual stimulation! There are fun, interactive designs in everything we create. A great example of this would be hiding tiny (almost microscopic) dancers in some of our backdrops. This is a fun game for our dancers to keep busy, almost like a game of Where’s Waldo. We love highlighting dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels!


What would you like the dancers and studios to know about your position?

We create everything with care and consideration, always keeping you in mind. Our mission is to always highlight the experience and moments made at our events. We really try to feature our dancers in everything we do!


What is your favorite song to dance to?

Everybody by the Backstreet Boys. You CANNOT NOT dance to that song!
