Living in London, Turbo is known as one of the most versatile street dancers. He became a household name when he captivated audiences on Sky's 'Got To Dance'. He has featured in music videos with many artists including Madonna, Will Smith, Jamelia, Mis-teeq and Shaznay Lewis, and performed with the late Whitney Houston. As one of the international judges in the AllIreland Hip Hop Championships, Turbo was impressed with dancers from the local Fit Kids Fit Teens dance club, who are trained by hip hop crew Raw Edge. He agreed to come over and do an exclusive workshop with them. Over 200 dancers from Blanchardstown, Clonee, Ballymun, Rush, Lusk, Donabate, Balbriggan and Leixlip descended on the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Blanchardstown for the event. 'It was fantastic to see so many young dancers being inspired by Turbo,' said Fit Kids Fit Teens founder Jacinta Cassidy.
