Lee teaches at workshops for Tap Attack. ISTD fellow Jo Scanlan said “Lee is an inspiration for all tap dancers; he is very passionate about sharing his art and knowledge. It is very exciting that dancers will get to see a true hoofer and I hope everyone will show their support."

Tayleur and Elliot

Tayleur (10) and Elliot (8) attend Nazene Danielle's Dance Dynamix school in Liverpool.

Tayluer won the Junior section at the Janet Cram Awards this year and Elliot (8) won the Boys Cup.

Due to their success, Nazene decided to choreograph a small duet for them for her school show. She thought they danced so well together that she entered them for the Got To Dance series 3 audition when it came up.
