BIO: Nina McNeely is a genre-bending choreographer, dancer, and artist. Having moved to Los Angeles from Denver, Colorado in 2001, Nina began her career performing burlesque, choreographing for LA’s underground club scene, and dancing in various contemporary dance companies including Hysterica Dance Company and Collage Dance Theater.
Her international and varied experience as a performer has allowed Nina to develop a unique aesthetic as a choreographer. Her work can be seen in Gaspar Noe’s current feature film “Climax.” Nina has choreographed for multiple world renowned artists including Rihanna, 30 Seconds to Mars, Pentatonix, Nick Jonas, Tove Lo, Demi Lovato, Calvin Harris, Dillon Francis, Banks, Pretty Lights, Fitz and The Tantrums, Major Lazer, Sam Sparro, Chloe + Halle, and shot with directors such as Eric Wareheim, Dugan O’Neal and Mike Rosenthal. Her commercial credits include Redbull, MAC, Lee Jeans, Samsung with Rihanna, Loctite, and Argos.
Nina brings her style as choreographer into her work as a multimedia artist and director, combining her multiple talents to produce work that is both surreal and ephemeral in nature. She has worked as a video editor since 2009, and that same year Nina also began experimenting with animation and projection mapping and co-founded WIFE in 2010 as a choreographer, dancer, and animator. In 2013, Nina began video directing, and has since directed music videos for Hayley Kiyoko, KERF, and Hi Fashion.
Nina created and performed in her first solo body mapping piece entitled MORPH, which ran in Franco Dragone’s 2014 production of Taboo in Macau, China.
Nina continues to live, work, dance, and create in Los Angeles.
