Nicholas Chrisman, artist alias “NØIR”, is a dancer, choreographer, and visionary born and raised in Portland, Oregon.

NØIR began dancing at 13 after being introduced to freestyle dance on YouTube. Through friends, he got introduced to the Portland street dance community.  They attended local events, competitions, and freestyle cyphers, quickly becoming an avid member of the dance scene.

NØIR specializes in Hip Hop Freestyle, Popping, and Animation, but trains in a variety of other street/club dances as well. They believe in the importance of foundation and respecting the culture one partakes in, but also being true to who you are as an individual. Dance to them is about fun, but also expressing your true, authentic self.
