Biography

Before the show

Kingston learned how to dance from online videos. He eventually became a well-known Youtube star.

Season 5

Kingston arrives at The Next Step Dance Studio upon West's invitation to join TNS West.[3] Despite the positive affirmation from his peers, Kingston finds himself struggling with choreography, which causes Michelle to take him out of the troupe. Saddened, but not discouraged, Kingston joins Baby Ballet in order to get needed technical training. This willingness to improve is what causes him to be let back into the troupe.[4]

Kingston is disappointed when TNS West loses the dance battle to TNS East.[5] Although, he sees a glimmer of hope when he and Ozzy discover that Elliot is a professional dancer, meaning that he cannot compete at Regionals.[6] He is shocked at the teams' subsequent fighting and even more so when the entire studio is taken out from the bid for Regionals as a result.[7]

Kingston is receptive to the idea of a merge between the teams and seeks help from Lola to improve his dancing in order to survive it. While initially discouraged by how much he is struggling, he eventually improves.[8] He is ecstatic when the merge is successful and the team is put back into the bid for Regionals.[9]

Kingston is in disbelief when he discovers that Ozzy booked their venue for filming for the wrong day, but takes it onto himself to help him find a venue for the video.[10] Kingston is ecstatic when the team qualifies for Regionals.[11]
