Fifteen-year-old Travis Lim has just returned from Graz, Austria competing at the IDO Street Dance World Championships Break Dance & Electric Boogie 2016. Travis won gold in two categories as the new IDO World Junior Champion in the Hip Hop Solo and Electric Boogie (Popping). Travis is the proud Canadian to win 2 categories “Double Gold” and stand on the podium to hear Canada’s National Anthem at IDO! Every year IDO has more that 3600 dancers from over 30 countries from three continents around the world meet to compete and Travis has won for the past two years. Travis is the defending champion of 2015 Junior Electric Boogie World Champion.
This multi-talented, Hip Hop World Champion also hosts a thirteen-episode half hour television series “Hip Hop with Travis Lim” that airs on Shaw TV. “Hip Hop with Travis Lim” features the beauty of the Hip Hop dance and explores its culture, by exploring the four elements of Hip Hop, that include Graffiti, BBoying, MCing and DJing. Travis showcases Hip Hop dance performances, music, fashion segments and interviews with Hip Hop cultural legends.
Travis’ other credits and merits include achievements in acting, mentoring and modeling along with appearing on local and national television. This summer Travis completed filming the lead role in the feature film “Hot Street”.
To those close to Travis, it is no surprise that he is so successful at such a young age. Travis is a role model, a champion and a spoke person who exudes confidence, dedication, passion that he commands in life on and off the stage encouraging people to follow their dreams.
This 15-year-old phenomenon has been setting the dance world alight since the tender age of six. Born and raised in Vancouver, Travis showed an interest in music, before he could walk. This junior world champion of the WORLD HIP HOP CHAMPIONSHIPS and eight-time gold medalist of DANCE WORLD CUP CANADA has the future at his feet. Hard work led Travis to being invited as a Canadian Goodwill Ambassador to teach Hip Hop workshops at the CID World Dance Congress in Japan making him the youngest presenter ever. His dynamic personality, strong work ethic, and disciplined, humble nature are the key that give him the edge, and maturity to be able to perform, teach, and speak at the young age of 13 as the “Goodwill Ambassador of Dance of Canada”.
Travis was featured in the 2010 Winter Paralympic opening ceremony. He performed at the 2016 BC Summer Game torch lighting in Abbotsford. Every summer Travis joins over 50 countries that travel to Las Vegas to the prestigious Hip Hop International to claim the top 3 spots of the World’s best dancers. Travis & his crews Freshh2.0 has proudly placed on the podium twice, bringing home the silver medal in 2010 and the Gold medal in 2014.
Travis is available for interviews, appearances and photos upon request.
