Nico Major (aka DR. BEAT aka SYNCHRO aka SKETCH aka NICO MYSTEREO aka ALMA FORTE aka SKRAMBLE aka SKRAMBLED LEGS) began dancing and performing at 5 years old, as a member of several of Edinburgh and East Lothian’s many Youth Dance and Youth Theatre companies, with his first professional theatre performance at 10 years old and several small TV appearances throughout his teens. The experiences of those early years coupled with an introduction to Hip Hop music via mixtapes, being passed around at High School, were the primer to a future lifestyle and vocation as a Hip Hop practitioner.

In 1997, the Hip Hop fever took full hold and he was diagnosed with "Happy Feet". Initially trained in the Breakin' & Hip Hop dance styles and also as a teacher by Freshmess, he was further schooled in both Hip Hop art forms by many of Scotland’s original underground Hip Hop scene and periodically through masterclasses from some of Breaking, Rocking, Popping & Locking’s original pioneers and current world-class dancers including – 7 Gems Rock Division, Electric Boogaloos, Alien Ness, Freeze, Ata, Frankie Flav, Reveal, Dyzee and Gemini. In 2007, he was one of the first people in the UK to receive certified teacher training in ‘Bboy Foundation’, taught by the world-famous Bboy legend, Ken Swift (7GEMS/Rock Steady Crew) through ‘The Pioneers’ programme run by Breakin Convention in London.

As a dancer, he has won many Breaking competitions, with his unique FREEstyle technique, which later led onto performances (on stage and screen) and award-winning tours (as far as Canada) with many other dance and theatre companies, Bboy crews and other talented performers.
