Leading the charge is Beatrice Massin, who has been dancing and choreographing since she was just 10 years old. You can occasionally catch her teaching classes when she isn’t directing.
Michell handles all of the day to day tasks and organizes the shows that you come to see. He’s constantly learning and adapting, so each show is better than the last.
Handling all of the behind the scenes stuff, Evelyn takes care of all the technical stuff that goes into each show for over 30 years now and loves every minute of it.
