They performed “Shallow,” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from “A Star is Born,” to commemorate Independence Day and for Father’s Day they performed to various songs including “Eye of the Tiger,” by Survivor.
In May, the trio danced to commemorate Memorial Day to help share messages of positivity and hope and to thank our troops for their service. Kirsten, Magnus and Tigran danced to a “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole. They created this as a gift for Mother’s Day celebrating mothers all around the world during this difficult time because a mother’s love only grows stronger in these difficult times.
