The Fame

The sub team includes young dancers who are under the age of 15. Tamia too started off by being a part of this sub team and eventually went on to be a part of the main group.
Tamia was in news after her reported disagreement with the owner of the team. It was said that Tamia was caught up in a cold war with the captain, owner and some of the fellow team members.
