This is Tyler Alexis Ward (likes to be knows as “Ty”). Ty is 7 years old and is the current Under 8 Advanced UDO World Champion! Ty started dancing at UDO when he was just 2 years old – one of our youngest starters!
Ty is from London and dances at Xpression Dance Studios. His mum is a Dance Teacher and his Dad is a Dancer as well, in fact Ty’s Dad also competed at UDO World Championships 2016! But Ty is still the only World Champion in his family!
Ty caught our eye when he posted a video of himself dancing in Covent Garden in London to raise money to attend Worlds. Check him out here https://www.facebook.com/ItsTyLondon/videos/177288179367974/
We have spoken with Ty’s Mum Natalie and she told us how Street Dance brings Ty “alive”. Ty does well at school but can be distracted but he is learning to concentrate better and develop some extra social skills by being part of a Team for the first time this year – instead of just solo dancing!
Ty is aiming to defend his title at UDO Worlds 2017 and we are going to follow him on his #roadtoworlds. Check him out here at UDO South Coast yesterday in Portsmouth.. and yes he did qualify in 3rd place. He is aiming for more points next week at UDO Six Nations Street Dance Championships as well where he will be part of Team England!
