Japanese performer Kenichi Ebina brings unique hip hop dance to Dubai
Japanese performer Kenichi Ebina, who won the talent show “America’s Got Talent” in 2013, will bring his unique brand of dance to City Center Mirdif on January 19 as part of the mall’s Dubai Shopping Festival celebrations.
Ebina combines freestyle, hip hop, mime, martial arts and jazz for a unique robotic dance form, which wowed the judges on the hit show’s eighth season.
The biography on her official website states that Ebina went to study in the United States in 1994 and started hip hop dancing as a hobby.
Ebina then launched her dancing career with the group BiTriP in 2001. The Japanese dance troupe won first place and became the grand champion of Apollo Amateur Night, a competition at the famous music hall in New York. Ebina was also the two-time Apollo Amateur Night Grand Champion in 2006 and 2007.
Years later, he made a name for himself on the world stage by participating in “America’s Got Talent”. He performed two dance routines in the final and won on September 18, 2013.
His website also says he has performed at events including a private party for singer Madonna and a Cirque Du Soleil show.
Ebina, 47, will perform at City Center Mirdif on January 19 at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
