George was born in Wales, UK. His family always enjoyed dancing and Country Music. His love of dance started when he attended his Nan’s line dancing class at the age of 10, and watched her do many of the linedances still being danced today. George not only dances for himself but also for the joy and pride it brings his nan and entire family back home in Wales.
He entered his first competition at 11 years old. He then went on competing in Line Dance competitions, where he won 6 consecutive world championship titles in the highest division, Division 1 All Stars. His desire for competing grew stronger where he then found himself competing in Latin and Ballroom dancing as well.
