Æ Creative Arts

This Is Us.

A dancing duo traveling the world together.

“In the fall of 2008, we found each other.”

Abby of Lake Orion, Michigan, and Erick, of Seattle, Washington were performance partners with a professional touring company that was traveling across Europe. “I knew the first person that would ask me to slow dance someday was going to be my husband,” Abby told her friend Erin in high school. Years later on a night out with the company cast and crew in Malaga, Spain, Erick held out his hand and asked her to dance. The tone of the night was written from a storybook. A live band serenaded the cast while these two danced under the stars in an outdoor venue. A perfect night ignited a romantic fire in an unlikely couple.

These two opposite personalities pursued their love for dance and ventured to Hollywood to continue their training and careers. With big dreams, grit, and passion they have traveled all over the world performing, teaching, and directing. Their main focus has always been to meet and connect with communities and people from around the world. “For the past 15+ years, we’ve been immersed in the world of performing arts. Our experiences have taken us around the world and we bring that world-class knowledge to every creative project we are involved in."
