Lennonery "Lennon" Torres is a 22-year-old dancer. Lennon was the only male contestant on the first season of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.


Lennon started dancing after they took a class with a friend around age ten. Lennon likes to watch jazz dances and perform lyrical. If they won the $100,000, they and their mother would use it for more dance.[1] If they don’t dance professionally, Lennon would like to be an ultrasound tech.[2] They have two sisters named Tesa and Mia. They enjoy hiking,[3] running, and making videos when they're not dancing. Lennon played soccer and baseball until they were 10 years old.

On Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition

Lennon was the only boy of the top fourteen contestants. They made it past the casting special and Episode 1. Lennon was given a solo by Jordyn in Episode 2, which was given high praise by the judges. Lennon was then paired with Brianna for their duet in Episode 3, and passed. In Episode 4, Lennon was placed with Brianna and Elisabeth in a hip-hop trio, a style they struggle with. They ended up facing off against their partner, Elisabeth, and girlfriend, Madison, in a dance-off. Elisabeth and Madison were spared, which meant Lennon was headed home. Abby said she would love to have Lennon join her group. Lennon returned and danced in the finale. They were shown as a good friend to other contestants because their elimination led to breakdowns by all of the dancers.


After AUDC, Lennon was scouted by producers for Dance Moms. They have since been a regular on Cathy's Apple Core team. Lennon has the longest tenure of the dancers on the Apple Core team, being on the team since it's beginning and rarely being absent. Lennon has had solos, duets, and groups with the team and still competes with their home studio when not filming.
