is Makeda’s third collaboration with MercVille Productions. The company first featured her last year in “The Pole Dancing Chronicles.” Sponsored and co-produced by Mighty Grip Inc., a leading worldwide sporting goods manufacturer, “The Pole Dancing Chronicles” showcases people and events from within the pole and aerial community in an effort to dispel myths and misconceptions around the growing art form. The working couple created the “Goddesses In Motion” pop-up video series as a platform for amateur pole dancers to experience being professionally filmed while performing to a song selection of their choice. The mini-productions result in a two-minute music video feature that the dancers can share across social media and with friends and family.

Christina Villegas, a former reality show producer, who in conjunction with co-owning MercVille Productions also owns and operates Flying Curves Dance Studio, notes, “‘Goddesses in Motion” is another extension of my vision to propel women to be their best selves, regardless of what society tells us about size or age or color. Putting ‘everyday’ women in front of a camera and capturing their inner essence is what this work is about. When we see ourselves on film, it becomes an expansion process. The women actually get to ‘see’ another dimension of their beautiful selves expressed and amplified!”
