Storm Helmore

Storm Helmore is a contemporary dancer, performer, maker and teacher based in Perth, Western Australia. Since graduating from WAAPA in 2011 Storm has built her career working consistently in the independent sector in Perth, collaborating and performing with numerous independent dance makers. Storm’s performance credits include works by Rachel Ogle (And The Earth Will Swallow Them Whole and Precipice), Scott Elstermann and Shona Erskine (Bang Bang), Laura Boynes (Dark Matter), Isabella Stone (Mouseprint), Sue Peacock (Reflect), Aimee Smith (Borderline) and Tyrone Robinson (KS Project). Storm has also performed for companies Co3 where she is a current ensemble member (Archives of Humanity by Raewyn Hill and Gloria by Douglas Wright), Buzz Dance Theatre (Trolleys by Shaun Parker) and STRUT Dance (One Flat Thing Reproduced by William Forsyth).
As a maker Storm is interested in the use of improvisation in performance and has choreographed and presented solo and ensemble work at STRUT Dance’s Short Cuts and In Situ seasons as well as their MoveMe Festival at the State Theatre Centre of WA, The Blue Room Theatre’s MicroMove season, and at WAAPA. Storm has undertaken an Artist In Residence process at The Chapel Space exploring solo improvisation, and was selected alongside Laura Boynes for an Artist-Residency-in-the-Tropics from Dancenorth. She has recently enjoyed working with Momentum Dance (a company for more senior dance artists) to create a work for presentation in 2024.
Storm is also a passionate teacher, placing great value on the act of dancing for everyone, not just professional artists. She shares her enthusiasm for dance across a variety of other contexts from professional level to open public classes, working with youth ensembles and delivering dance programs in schools, as well as at tertiary level and full-time dance schools around Perth.
