They have spent the past several years combining dance styles such as ballroom, with contemporary ballet, dark jazz, tribal, and Japanese Butoh, to create their own unique dance style, danced by no one else. Entirely improvisational, their dance transcends labels and has become voyeuristic performance art.

They have been featured as solo dancers at the Urban Garden Room in NY and at events like the Columbus Italian festival, Columbus Arts Festival, Dublin Irish Festival, Cleveland Fashion GlamJam and many more.
