Tyler returns to SCPA this year as a senior. No longer satisfied with just being the best hip-hop dancer in the school, Tyler is looking to challenge himself as a performer and become a talented actor and singer as well. Tyler's first test in these uncharted waters is his audition for the big school musical, "Fame." Not only will Tyler have to push himself as an artist, he'll face competition from the new kids, especially Carlton, who is out to dethrone Tyler as the #1 dancer in the school. Tyler's from one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the U.S. and his goal this year is to become a professional dancer in order to get out of Cincinnati and to provide a better life for his family. When Tyler gets the audition of a lifetime--a role in a major feature film it's his one chance to make all of his dreams come true.
