Currently, she teaches at the University of Michigan’s UMove program, “Swing City Dance”, “The Glass Room” and coaches pre-professional students privately. During the last year and a half, Ms. Chapman has familiarized herself in several partnering dances. She is presently focused in Latin Dance and Cabaret. [1]

Audition

Marc & Kiri's audition was never televised. It is unknown whether or not the two were buzzed, but at least three judges voted "Yes," sending the duo to the Judge Cuts round.

Judge Cuts

Marc & Kiri's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1008 consisted of dancing a ballroom routine with multiple lifts. Their performance was not strong enough for the judges to send them to the Quarterfinals, eliminating them from the competition along with Duo Ignite, instead of Freelusion Dance Company.
