Before the Show
Ever since he was five, LaTroy's father was absent; on several occasions he would promise to see LaTroy but would never show up.
Amidst auditions for A-Troupe, LaTroy has trouble with Daniel's contemporary choreography. Knowing that he cannot master it, he incorporates hip-hop moves into the routine. His uniqueness must have been commended, because he makes it onto A-Troupe.
LaTroy is thrilled when he receives a text from his estranged father in which he claims that he wants to meet; his utter excitement causes him to ditch Sloane. LaTroy is disappointed when his father does not show up and choreographs a solo for Sloane as an apology.
LaTroy realizes that he needs to become a more versatile dancer and asks Amy to help him learn a contemporary combo. LaTroy not only learns some contemporary, but bonds with Amy in the process.
LaTroy comes to like Amy romantically and, after her assertion that she'd like to, he asks her out on a date. LaTroy is shocked when the news of his upcoming date with Amy upsets Sloane and even more shocked when he finds out that Sloane likes him, as he doesn't reciprocate the feeling. LaTroy decides to date Amy and eventually commences a relationship with her, resulting in the deterioration of his friendship with Sloane.
Hoping to reconnect with his father, LaTroy takes up his offer to renovate a farmhouse with him for a while. He tells Sloane and Amy about this decision; while he is met with hostility from Sloane, Amy is more understanding. Although the decision to leave is a hard one, LaTroy knows that he has to choose his biological family over his dance family. LaTroy's time at the farmhouse does little to mend his relationship with his father, however.
LaTroy begins to develop an acute fear of missing out, which Amy attempts to help him with. Over video chat, he speaks to Amy, Henry, and Michelle... and Sloane. His conversation with Sloane is admittedly awkward, but it aid in mending their burned bridge. LaTroy is elated when Sloane tells him that she wants to be best friends with him again.
LaTroy is happy to return to The Next Step and reconnect with Amy and Sloane, although he begins questioning his relationships with the two. When Amy tells him she loves him at Regionals, LaTroy resounds the sentiment but is unsure of if he means it. Although, he later tells Sloane he loves her and sure of it. Knowing that he actually loves Sloane, LaTroy breaks up with Amy to be with her.
LaTroy is saddened that Sloane will not be auditioning, but is glad to have a her as such a supportive girlfriend.
LaTroy prizes uniqueness and individuality. LaTroy is extremely confident, a trait which sometimes verges on conceit and blindness to his weaknesses. LaTroy often needs others to make him aware of his flaws. In relation to this, LaTroy also tends to be quite oblivious. For instance, LaTroy cannot see that Amy and Sloane like him romantically until he is explicitly told so.
LaTroy often attempts to be the mediator, like he does with Sloane and Amy, but usually fails. He is also extremely hopeful, proven by the number of second chances that he provides his deadbeat father with, which may contribute to his peacemaking nature.
LaTroy has dark skin, dark hair, and dark brown eyes.
LaTroy's attire is very casual; it consists almost entirely of t-shirts, jackets and sweatpants. His wardrobe mostly consists of red, blue, black, and white clothing.
