Storm Helmore is an independent dance artist based in Perth, Western Australia. Since graduating from WAAPA in 2011, Storm has built her career predominantly as a dancer and performer through her regular and ongoing engagements with numerous independent choreographers and companies around Australia, including Marrugeku, Buzz Dance Theatre, Strut Dance, Praxis Collective, Hydra Poesis, Sue Peacock, Rachel Ogle, Rhiannon Newton, Joe Lau & Bridget Fiske, Lisa Wilson, Emma Fishwick, Isabella Stone, Aimee Smith and Tyrone Robinson.
Storm is also developing her own choreographic voice and is particularly interested in the use of improvisation in the creation of work and in performance. She is constantly fascinated with the idea that our dancing bodies are an ever expanding collection of inherited and learned traits and knowledge and is exploring how to express the range of this information in her own body and in others. Storm has choreographed and presented short works for Strut Dance and The Blue Room Theatre, been commissioned by WAAPA to create a work for students, and undertaken choreographic residencies at The Chapel Space both as part of Uncollected Collective and a solo artist, and is one of the 2018 recipients of the Dancenorth Artist Residency in the Tropics program.
Storm places great value on the act of dancing for all, not just professional dancers, and is very committed to sharing dance through teaching, doing so regularly in a variety of contexts from full-time dance schools to open public classes.
Storm Helmore is joining the Co3 team as an Act-Belong-Commit Co:Youth Teaching Artist.
