The majority of Logan Grant's life has been spent on the dance floor.
Logan has grown from a seven-year-old, Michael Jackson inspired, "shy little boy" to a 17-year-old Evolve Dance Company dancer who has spent the better part of a decade learning his craft on the Border.
And that hard work has paid off with a full time, two year, $26,000 scholarship to complete an advanced diploma of dance at Sydney dance company Dargie Entertainment.
"I was up at Australian Dance Festival in Sydney earlier this year and Dargie Entertainment have an audition process to get this scholarship and I actually wasn't registered to audition but they asked me personally to do it and I guess I just got chosen from there," Logan said.
"I screamed a little in class at school when I got the notification I had got it.
"I have just started year 12 and while it was an easy decision for me to decide to follow my dream of becoming a professional dancer, it was a big conversation to have with my parents."

Logan admits being the "only boy in the class" for the majority of his dancing at Albury's DMB Dance and Performing Arts Centre was "a challenge".
"Communication was the hardest thing," he said.
"I didn't know the girls and coming in as the only guy was hard.
"But I think once I challenged myself and with the help of my teachers I began seeing results in my dancing it became a lot easier.
"Ultimately I want to be on a stage somewhere, everywhere, around the world performing."
Logan admits he "wouldn't be the man he is without DMB".
"They accepted me as a shy little boy who had a love for MJ and helped me realise my passion for dance and become a much better person," he said.
"I have come out of my shell and have spent most of the past 10 years at the studio so I will miss them dearly.
"But it is so exciting and I can't wait to get started."
Logan will move to Sydney in January and start classes in February.
"I don't turn 18 until October so it is a big life change and I think the step up from dancing a few hours a day here in Albury to all day, everyday up there will be massive," he said.
"This is what I want to do and l hope I can get there."
