'I did everything my sisters did, that's how my dancing days started - they went dancing, I went dancing and I just kept on dancing.' Still Got It, Never Lost It is the much-anticipated autobiography from Louie Spence, star of Pineapple Dance Studios and Louie Spence's Showbusiness. From a very early age Louie was a little boy who loved to dance and had high ambitions. He attended every disco dance class he could and excelled each time, with the constant support of his Mum and Dad. Before long Louie's blue leotard had become a mainstay in the family home, and soon enough he was accepted into the Italia Conti School of Theatre Arts. And he never looked back. From dancing on the Spice Girls World Tour to performing in London's West End in Cats, Louie Spence lived out his dreams. Now a TV personality in his own right, the star of Pineapple Dance Studios and his own series Showbusiness, Louie has become a much-loved household name. This hilarious, warm and compellingly-written autobiography takes us back to Louie's early days in Essex, with a cast of characters that includes Nanny Lock (who lived down the Enfield lock), Nanny Twinkle and Nanny Downer (with whom Louie, as a kid, would go on trips to the local Londis for cans of Special Brew). Still Got It, Never Lost It is the story of the real-life Billy Elliot - a tale that proves nothing can stop you when you think big and hold on to your dreams.
