Erick Yanez started dancing at the age of sixteen. Self-taught in hip hop, he began taking dance classes at Burnet High School where he learned the principal elements of dance. From the moment he started, he fell in love with dance and entered into his 1st two dance competitions: he placed top ten overall in both of them and received performance/showmanship awards along with a scholarship to New York Dance Experience. This provided multiple opportunities as an instructor and a performer. He then booked his 1st teaching job at Studio 29. Erick has also performed as a dancer in numerous music videos, shows, and traveled to work with multiple artists like Sean Paul, K Camp, Tory Lanez & D Woods. He has also trained and taken classes from many world known choreographers like Matt Steffanina, NappyTabs and Nick DeMoura just to name few. After teaching choreography at multiple schools, camps, workshops and intensives, Erick is now an instructor at various studios throughout the Austin area and faculty member with Dupree Dance Convention. Erick is also founder of Diversified Unity! He continues to spread his love for dance with others.

Courtney Kirby has been dancing since the age of 5, training in Tampa Florida. She auditioned for “So You Think You Can Dance” season 9  in 2012, her audition aired on tv and made it to the next round in Vegas making the top 40 females. After that, she got a job working at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as a seasonal performer for 3 years. She has traveled around the world for 7 years as a dancer/acrobat/aerialist for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines as well as doing a one year contract with Feld Entertainments Disney Live Show “Mickeys Music Festival” as a dancer acrobat and swing. She has also been teaching dance, acrobatics & choreography in between her contracts.
