The ensemble of up to sixteen skaters worked together for five years performing in a wide variety of venues, including the Opening Ceremonies of the 2001 US Figure Skating Championships in Boston, MA.
In 2004 Elin co-founded Frozen Frog Productions which specialized in developing high-energy shows for audiences of all ages.
