About Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli: 

Over the past 13 years, Lazylegz has developed his career as a professional dancer by competing and performing in a wide variety of international dance events such as Breakin’ Convention, Freestyle Session, IBE, R16, Circle Prinz, World of Dance and Hip Hop International. With growing notoriety, he has had opportunities to appear on both Canadian and American media, including appearances on the Ellen Degeneres Show, So You Think You Can Dance Canada, The Today Show, America’s Got Talent, Tout le Monde en Parle, Star Académie, TF-1 and Paul O’Grady. A few years ago, just as his dancing reached a new peak in maturity and his message gained momentum, Lazylegz was given the honour of both headlining and being Segment Director for the 2010 Paralympic Opening Ceremonies. This world-wide coverage led to an invitation the following year from the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, France to join the cast of Montalvo-Hervieu’s production of Orphée as a lead dancer. Overall, Laylegz has toured the world, performing and inspiring in over 22 countries. He remains an active presence on the international stage as the current National Youth Dance Ambassador for the Canadian Dance Assembly.
