A Brentford break-dancer's hard work and dedication to his craft has earned him the enviable title of Hounslow's Young Male of the Year.

Torron-Lee Dewar, of Clayponds Gardens, has danced with the Alluminae Dance company for five years and rarely misses the twice weekly sessions held at Watermans Arts Centre.

The 16-year-old dancer's mum Debbie, who runs Fantasy Land fancy dress shop in Ealing Road, said: "He was over the moon to win that award. He's been there for so long and is so dedicated. He just loves to dance."

Torron, who when performing goes by the name of Neon, and his group Combustion also represented Hounslow in 2008's Dance Challenge at Wembley.

Torron, a pupil at Isleworth and Syon School for Boys, said groups like Alluminae are important for young people. "It's good to join in a class to learn how to dance, it keeps young people off the street and gives them something good to focus on," he said. "I would like to thank my dance teachers for helping me achieve my goals in street dance."

Alluminae puts on a dance show three times a year and you can next see Torron and others perform around Easter time. For information on how to join the dance company contact Watermans Art Centre on 020 8232 1010.
