Sebastian Reinhart AKA Sabatoge has been grooving to the beats since he was small. Creating his own moves in his room, he entered his first talent show at his school in grade 1 and then again performed in grade 2. In grade 2, he saw an advertisement for Pound It Hip Hop studio. He entered into a summer camp and was hooked.
In the summer of 2015, Sebastian performed weekly at the Sylvan Lake farmers market to earn enough money to pay his way to a street dance camp.
He raised over $1000 to participate in a week long street dance camp in Calgary where he trained with the original hip hop instructors from all over the world.
Instructors included Poppin Pete, Loose Joint, Lilou, Ken Swift, Marquest, Brooklyn Terry and Mikey Disco. This was Sebastian’s first experience battling. He battled in Popping, Hip Hop and Breaking against mostly adults. The battling changed him as a dancer and his new passion was to battle. In the summer of 2016 ,2018, and 2019 he travelled to New York to participate in Street Style Lab with
instructors, David Collas, Buddha Stretch, Link and Yoshi. While in New York, he entered into the Step Ya Game up battle where he was the only Canadian to make it to the Semi Finals in the kids battle.
In the summer of 2017, he participated in Street Style Lab Red Deer. He was trained once again with Popin' Pete and Buddha Stretch, along with Caleaf and Storm.Here he competed in Face2Face in Popping, Breaking and House.
At the 2017 Pound It Christmas Battle he won first in both the 1vs1 Hip Hop and 2vs2 All Styles Category judged by Chry Baby Cozie.
Sebastian embraces all dance forms of the hip hop culture, battling in all categories he can, but his true passion is for Breaking. Other instructors that have travelled to the Pound It Studio to train him include: Cebo, Chrybaby, Megaman, Shotyme, Ynot, Suga Pop, Link and Mr. Wiggles. Just recently Storm, from Germany travelled back to Red Deer a second time and Sebastian was able to take private lessons with the legend.
After being inspired at the House finals at Step Ya Game in NYC up July 2019 Sebastian has taken his House practice to another level. He has smart fast feet and is now running the House Program at the studio.
With some coaching from Rico at Pound It studio Sebastian started his first business as a DJ at 9 years old. His entrepreneurial drive has given him opportunities to dj with Rappers Madd Child and Merkules. In the spring of 2018 he had the opportunity to DJ at an event with the Oola Guys. He also plays several school dances throughout central Alberta, charity events, and local events such as Jazz at the Lake and the Battle at the Beach Hockey tournament. Again this year the young business man has earned enough cash with his DJ business to pay for his second trip to New York City this upcoming July to train and dance with the biggest names in Hip Hop.
He is young, he is fresh, he is ready. Sabatoge is a true testament that hard work does pay off. Along with teaching Sabatoge will also be available to DJ Birthday Parties hosted in our studio.
