“Most dance programs are predominately ballet or modern driven. I believe that you need those to have a strong foundation, but if you can’t get a job, you’re in trouble… In order to succeed on Broadway, television, film, or Dancing With the Stars, you have to know a wide variety of styles.”

Wes Veldink

Director and choreographer, Wes Veldink, began developing his unique and dynamic style of dance over two decades ago. Based in the fundamentals of jazz, ballet, and modern, his work transforms human posture and gesture into movement that brings the intricacies of music to visual life and transcends the boundaries between commercial and concert dance. 
After moving to New York City, Wes started his own professional dance company, The Wes Veldink Movement, which toured Los Angeles, Toronto and South Korea.

Recently, Wes has choreographed a series of commercials for Joe Fresh, an international campaign for Nikon with Kate Moss, and a Revlon campaign with Olivia Wilde. In music, Wes was a contributing choreographer for Alicia Keys' Set the World on Fire Tour and was the Director/Choreographer for Ashlyne Huff's 30-city Heart of Gold Promotional Tour. 

Additionally, Wes choreographed and set the dance sequences for Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester in the feature film Country Strong. Through his own production company, "Calm & Sense Creations," he has conceived, directed, and choreographed two dance short films: Full Circle (filmed in the Redwood National Forest) and Untitled (filmed in Tropea, Italy).
