Le Chat

Born in Bow in East London, Le Chat (aka Malakhov due to spectacular leaps) spent the first year of his life on the streets where he got into lots of fights with other cats - this explains the lacy edge to his left ear - until he was rescued. Seeking a career in dance he auditioned for Dance Europe and is now in charge of Dance Europe's tweets - when not eating, sleeping or patrolling the neighbourhood.
