Christy and Brian work out of their studios in their Colorado home, which sits on a park overlooking the gorgeous open space of Boulder County. Christy loves to watch the wild birds, squirrels and rabbits playing outside and often features them in her little ballet stories. Brian’s eclectic style incorporates his many influences including classical, jazz, ragtime and avant garde. Christy and Brian brainstorm their ideas while hiking, drinking coffee, driving or just being together. Their projects are created in-house in their piano, dance and recording studios and they love bringing these beautiful little ballets to you!
