Ari’s strong background in ballet and contemporary dance coupled with Simon’s sports background has created an elegant, athletic and playful partnership. Their dance is based on a strong respect of the music and of each other as dancers. Their style and sense of fun shines through in the way they dance, perform and teach. Currently touring the world, they will be based in Beijing for the next 5 months.
