Price grew up in a conservative and somewhat suppresive mining town in South Yorkshire. A defining moment in his career arrived in 2001 when as a 13 year old he was diagnosed with Dyspraxia, a motor control illness which affects co-ordination. Price’s therapist advised him to take up dance to improve his movement and co-ordination and his path to pop prince-dom began. A natural performer his extrodinary talent for dance landed him at the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London, the bright eyed teenager trained alongside the like of Billie Piper,Amy Winehouse and Eliza Doolittle,appearing in the usual run of t.v commercials,pop videos and dance shows. His wanderlust meant he was dissatisfied with the sacarine and regimented nature of stage school and felt a leaning towards more rebelious strands of performance. The stage school rebel frequented many of the capitals most talked about nightclubs. It was on the club scene that Price`s wild dance floor antics would earn him money as a gogo dancer,a proffesion which would pay his rent. The nightclub scene was also where Price would meet musical and performative collaborators.Initally developing as a performance artist and making his debut at Amy Lame`s much loved Duckie at The Vauxhall Tavern before gracing the stage at Heaven,Mark Moores night Electro gogo at Madame JoJos, KOKO and Brixton Accadamy.
