Sherwin "Beast" Salonga
a.k.a Baby Tight Eyex, Leader of Beastcamp
Hailing from Los Angeles Sherwin is a past Krump World Champion and known for being one of the hardest working people within the industry. As the leader of the "BeastCamp" an international Krump brand he has shown time and time again that he is a giant in the community and a true professional.
He has danced on some of the biggest stages in the world outside of the Krump industry and is constantly drawing upon other sources of inspiration to innovate his dance. Sherwin has visited Australia more than any other overseas Krumper. This due to his ‘big homie’/’big brother’ relationship with some of Australia’s elite krumpers. This Krump terms means there is a familial bond with these dancers, flying over for birthdays and other significant moments of the dancers life. We are proud to have Sherwin back again for another iteration of Embrace the Hype.

As a leader of the Russian movment he has been able to directly influence the growth of the scene and is one of the main reasons it is where it is today. An amazing dancer in his own right he has won more than 40 events all over the world and is constantly being invited to different countries to teach and judge the best that they have to offer.
