39-year-old Kenichi Ebina is a solo self-taught dance performer, started out dancing Freestyle Hip-Hop and expanding his style to Poppin’, Lockin’, Mime, House, Jazz, Contemporary and Ethnic dance. Have you seen his “head drop”?
The dance artist of Japanese origin is currently a competitor for season 8 of the hit T.V show America’s Got Talent; but his skills have gained him recognition among his peers.
With the dance group he founded in 2001 “BiTriP” won 1st place in the grand championship of “Amateur Night” at the world famous Apollo Theater in 2001 and were the first and only Japanese grand champions.
Another of his achievements includes when he appeared on dance contest of “Showtime at the Apollo” back in 2007, as a solo performer and became the grand champion of 2007 season after winning 7 times, making him the only two-time grand champion in the Apollo theater history.
The seasoned dancer has performed at many events, TV shows but he also shares his skills, teaching in USA, Europe, Russia, China, Japan, Korea, Morocco and Australia. Kenichi also has performed, directed and choreographed for many projects and dance and theater companies. He was also a speaker at the 2007 TED.
The super talented performer has a daughter and is happily married, we assume but his better halve is nowhere to be found! Did he leave her in Tokyo?? With his success we think is time we meet Mrs. Kenichi Ebina right!
We were all stunned with his Matrix-inspired performance audition-including his wife I’m sure-the audition featured martial arts and mime expertise. Re-live the moment one more time here
Kenichi hopes to achieve his ultimate dream of performing in Vegas following his passion for dance. So we are sure his wife must be supportive from wherever she is. Would the real Mrs. Ebina please stand up?
