Miriam has a huge appetite for knowledge of all kinds. She obtained a PhD in Quantitative Psychology (in her case, straight up statistics) from Vanderbilt University and worked as a statistician/data scientist for over 10 years until making arts her number 1 priority.
She started playing (jazz) saxophone and piano in 1992, started practicing Tai Chi and Kung Fu in 2000/2003 and finally took the plunge to attend breakdance practice at Rocketown here in Nashville in 2006. This was also right around the time she developed the vision of running a venue/arts space bringing many different forms and directions of art together.
Growing up in Berlin in the 90s, street art has a special place in her heart.
Quincy has been dancing since the year 2000, starting out with breaking, but also constantly researching other styles of dance.
He has won numerous breakdance competitions in the SE United States such as Loose Screws, NBL, Get Rooted, and Atlanta Street Jam. Together with his friend Justin Keoninh, he founded 'Bashville Stampede', the largest Bboy jam in the Midsouth, now going into its 14th year.
He is also the founder of 615 House of Dance, the first breakdance studio in Tennessee and the precursor to Construct.
