While he was teaching "the best flap ball changes money could buy," casting agents were across the hall auditioning #dancers for Billy Elliot on broadway. They took one look at Thommie Retter & said, "That's our man."  

Listen now (15 min) to find out what it's like to move to NYC & perform for 1.5 million people over a three year period. 

Thommie also shares why, while growing up on Tremaine Dance Conventions, he learned to appreciate only 1st, 2nd & 3rd place trophies at competitions.  #TeamTremaine #Life101

Thommie says, "We're NOT all winners, all the time." There's no fourth place. He says because he was not tall, skinny & good-looking that consistently, "losing taught him to be a winner." 

Listen now to this incredible story from a man who made his dreams come true. Find out more by visiting Tommie on www.facebook.com/thommieretter. He's tweeting @bwaythom. His entertaining website is www.ThommieRetter.com.
