Cory and Eve have known one another since childhood. Both grew up studying dance and attending conventions together in St. Louis, Mo. Cory began his professional dance career at 18, earning numerous credits and accolades in the industry before his love of photography inspired him to found CEVENTPICS in 2005. Meanwhile Eve graduated Webster University, earning a BFA in dance and choreography along with an MA in management and leadership, before beginning her own professional dance career. Though their work led them in different directions, Cory and Eve remained good friends, dreaming about the day they might collaborate on something special. Opportunity struck in 2012 with the launch of the first season of Velocity Dance Convention.
Today, Velocity is going into its 9th Season, having grown over the years through the business and support of hundreds of gifted young dancers, and that of their parents and mentors. The passion and belief in the value of what Velocity has to offer on the part of the dance community has enabled this convention to inspire thousands of hearts and minds throughout the United States over the years. It has exceeded Cory and Eve’s hopes and humbled them to learn just how much this platform means to students of dance nationwide. They are thrilled to continue their journey with Velocity Dance Convention and welcome you to the 2021 Season!
