We are married individuals who enjoy films, dance, acting, singing, walking, exploring, traveling, and spending time with our families. We are Theatre/Dance majors starting our senior year at Luther College. We came from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin to study and live in Decorah, a community we thoroughly appreciate and enjoy being a part of. We are passionate about art, education, children, and wellness. Together in 2010, we created and directed a fine arts camp sponsored by the Luther Wellness Department called Life Forms. We also studied abroad for a year in England and are excited to share with this community the global perspectives and creativity we cultivated during our travels.
