Wes “King Wes” Stewart


Wes has danced since he was three years old; now, at 23, his broad dance background includes studies at almost every hip-hop and jookin’ studio in Memphis (plus a couple of ballet academies!). He has worked professionally for the past nine years, most recently as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies dance team. Stewart also has entrepreneurial plans, especially as a clothing designer. After dancing in choreographed styles, returning to jookin’ has been a liberating experience for him: “It’s an empowerment thing—it’s freedom!” @Kvngs.island_
