Philippe Welter, age twelve, was born into a family of dancers. His mom, Jahye, and his older sister, Hanna, are both tap dancers, and his grandmother was a professional dancer. While watching his mom dance when he was young, Philippe was captured by the sounds and beats and decided to do it himself. Although he enjoys playing games like any other boy, he is happiest when his feet are tapping. Philippe studies with teacher Hiroshi Hamanishi at the Colburn School.
