Season 4

Amidst auditions for A-Troupe, LaTroy and has trouble with Daniel's contemporary choreography. Knowing that he cannot master it, he incorporates hip-hop moves into the routine.[3] His uniqueness must have been commended, because he makes it onto A-Troupe.[4]

LaTroy regards Amy as she shows him one of the parts of the combo.

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.[5]

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.[6] LaTroy decides to date Amy and eventually commences a relationship with her, resulting in the deterioration of his friendship with Sloane.

LaTroy looks on sadly.

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.[7]

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.[8] LaTroy is elated when Sloane tells him that she wants to be best friends with him again.[9]


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.[6]

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.
