Storm started dancing as a little child, but seriously caught on to the dances B-boying, Popping and Locking at the age of 14. He started his professional carreer in 1984 touring through clubs throughout north Germany for a youth magazine tour. Soon after that, the ‚Breakdance‘ fashion died out, but Storm simply ignored the fact. He kept on studying styles, got connected with other B-boy remnants and stayed creative and productive throughout the times when Breaking was considered obsolete. By today Storm is held responsable in large parts for the worldwide cultural reoccurrence of Breaking. The following facts tell you how. In 1991 and 1992 him and his crew Battle Squad won the „international Balle of the year“.

Because of the struggle in times when B-boying was out of fashion and the fact that he´s been dancing for so long, he decided to establish Hip-Hop culture in the theatre world.

From 1992 on he danced with a New Yorker dance Company called Ghettoriginal. he performed shows in Washingtons ‚Kennedy Center‘ and in NYCities ‚Lincoln center‘.

Briefly after quitting the job in early 1996, he decided to form a dance company in his hometown Berlin, which was called the ‚Storm and Jazzy Project‘. With two choreographies they toured many different theaters around the world The first performance was seen in February 1997 in the Maison de la danse in Lyon. Nowadays Storm also choreographs and directs for different theaters and institutions all over the world. He also choreographed for the opening ceremonies of the Expo 2000 in Hannover and the FIFA soccer world cup 2006 in Germany.
