Pontus Persson has been dancing continuously since he was 5 years old, actively competing (since the age of 6) and started teaching professionally as a 16-year old. After graduating, he moved to Stockholm in 2008 to evolve his dancing, being offered membership of the dance company, Harlem Hot Shots (now called The Hot Shots). He has since then been spreading the dance on a full-time basis through shows and competitions, not to mention, teaching. He has worked with television, theatres and international events all around the world.
