Project Description

Q & A with Tou Ger Digit Lee

When did you start?

I was introduced to Dance at the age of 10 when my older brother showed me how to do an arm
wave. When I was 16, I decided to dedicate more of myself to my craft and then when I was 19,
I made the decision to dedicate the rest of my life to Dance.

What do you hope to achieve through the Kollaboration experience?

One of my main purposes for Dance is to be able to inspire others to pursue their passion.
Through my performance, I hope to trigger that inspiration in the viewers and motivate them to
not only chase what they truly desire in life, but to inspire someone else to do the same as well.

might even catch me in the middle of writing one of my many long Facebook status’ about my
thoughts. Hahaha

People would be surprised to learn that…

I dropped out of college in order to work and earn enough money to move out to Chicago to
Dance. Once I made it to Chicago, I realized there was so much left to learn in my own field and
decided to turn down the Dance Company that I had originally planned to sign with. This
company still holds a very special place in my heart and I’m blessed to have continued working
with them as a guest.

My biggest inspirations are…

Ah, where to start?? Two of my main Dance groups at the moment, The Electric Funketeers and
Dream Team, inspire me beyond words in terms of Dance; My older brother, Peter, will probably
remain one of my biggest inspirations in life since the day he taught me how to Dance; and of
course my parents, who have given everything that they possibly could.

If I could perform with anybody in the world, it would be…

The Kinjaz. I love what they stand for as a brotherhood and their way of movement and
philosophy seem to fit mine hand in hand. I also love the fact that most of them (if not all) come
from a freestyle Dance background, and that they were able to apply that perfectly to their

None. I was never talented and had a hard time keeping up with everyone else in Dance when I was younger. I just ended up having working harder to earn the skillset that I currently have…and I’m STILL falling behind. Haha.
