History

Melissa Gomez and Jocelyn Guest met in a Shannon O'Neill 301 class on April 3rd, 2008. They became facebook friends later that night. Jocelyn and Melissa have together been taught in classes or workshops by : Will Hines, Joe Wengert, Joe Bill, Shannon O'Neill, Chris Gethard and Armando Diaz. They had their first duo practice on September 20th, 2008 with Sue Galloway and they realized that they might be in over their heads. They eventually took a duo class with Armando Diaz and banged out their form.

They also perform in Cheap Kitty together.

Thick As Thieves
