We Catch Up With World Champion Tega Alex

We Catch Up With World Champion Tega Alex

Just like there are many successful artists who specialise in different genres of music, the same goes for dancers. There are lots of talented dancers in the world who are extremely talented in different categories of dance, no matter what style they first trained in.

Tega Alexander is a great example of this. He began dancing after a particular movie got him trying out a few moves of his own! When he discovered that he was capable of imitating the dancers he saw on film, there was no stopping him.

He developed a style of dance that suited him by self-teaching, but when he started to attend local classes, it opened up his eyes to a lot more that was out there.

Over the years he has developed his technique as well as working alongside Trilogy dance troupe and as you can imagine, the studio time with these boys was intense! But a challenge is what Tega looks forward to and with challenges come great results, as Tega experienced when he won first place at the IDO Hip-Hop World Championships in Germany this year.

We caught up with Tega to find out what life has been like since becoming number one in the world and we also got an insight into the big plans he has ahead for 2013. Catch him in issue 11 of L’ART out online December 3rd.
