As a former dancer, I know that when you feel well dressed, you dance well”, underlines the singer of 25 years, in the casting of season 11 of “Dance with the stars”. “This is my mom’s favorite show.

“When I win Mum, you’ll sleep with the trophy for a whole week!”– Tayc

Spotted by Barack Adama, founding member of the Assault Section with Gims, Tayc “vehicle afrolove” in music by mixing the romance of R&B with African sounds. He appeared last year among the French-speaking revelations nominated at the NRJ Music Awards, where viewers were able to admire his sway. Except that “Dancing with the stars” promises to be a totally different experience in terms of choreography. “It will be difficult for me too. I will have to remove this Afro posture which is more flexible than that of ballroom dancing”, comments the one who fears the fox-trot.

Tayc explains that he was reluctant to agree to join the TF1 dance competition. “It is not easy to find yourself confronted with notes. But afterwards, you tell yourself that there are a lot of things to be grasped in terms of career, in terms of learning and in terms of personal. It requires surpassing oneself “, he says. “We will be watched by millions of people. It may be the only time in my life that I will have such a platform.”, he insists.

But there is another one he wants to reassure: his mother. “When I win Mum, you’ll sleep with the trophy for a whole week!”, he promises. The appointment is made.
