Born and raised in South Western Sydney, Chris Merriman started his dancing journey in quite an unexpected way. Through his youth, he worked a regular job like any average aussie bloke. In his spare time, he excelled in Sport & Recreation – with the greatest potential towards a career in Rugby League. He gained experience in the Australian Army Reserve at the young age of 17. But under the rough exterior of this determined athlete & soldier, was a passionate dancer – whose love for the art of breakdancing, since the age of 11, became more prominent by the time he was a young adult.
Morgan “Morganics” Lewis mentored him in breakdancing, mc-ing & acting in 1999. He became a member of Juse Crew, Sydney since 2000. Made his dance/TV debut on the first season of “So You Think You Can Dance Australia” in 2008. In 2009, after meeting William Sanchez, he began his career with the ‘Beat The Streets’ crew.
Since then, he has been involved in many of the street show performances, corporate projects & group competitions, representing the ‘Beat The Streets’ brand with professionalism and integrity. Well known for his strength, dedication & loyalty, he continues to develop further skills and experience in Parkour (free-running), Film/TV Stunts, Tricking and Calisthenics. He’s also touching on his acting career, appearing in many recent TV commercials and films.
He has solidified his reputation in the B-boy/dance scene, under the pseudonym ”Kamikazi”, and is now destined to have his name, not only recognized in the entertainment industry in Sydney, but throughout the world.
