English National Ballet dancer Shevelle Dynott was discovered when 'Chance to Dance' visited his Brixton primary school. In 1996 he became the first child from the scheme to go to the Royal Ballet School.

He says the highlight of his career was performing Mock Turtle in Alice in Wonderland with the English National Ballet.

Dynott won the Bronze Medal at the Adeline Genee awards in Greece in 2004 and performed at the Royal Albert Hall in 2007.
