Ellena, Danielle, Michael and Wally are a family of four, originally from Ohio. A unique bunch, they have a lot of love and respect for each other as artists and are firmly bonded in their Polish heritage, hence the nod to Marie Curie in their team name. Their family is spread throughout the states, but remain a close family. Introducing the players.
