Celeste Kelley '13
Celeste Kelley ’13 worked for Revolution Dancewear LLC at company headquarters in Niles, Ill. as a summer intern and was hired full time in August of 2013. She works along with other Illinois Wesleyan alumni who have also found their calling with Revolution Dancewear.
“As our company expands and grows every day, I think it’s really exciting to see how many members of the Wesleyan family we’ve chosen to help this successful company grow even more,” says Jenilee Houghton ’05, a theatre major at IWU who is now Revolution Dancewear’s senior director of creative development.
For two consecutive years, Revolution Dancewear LLC has hired IWU students as interns, and in the past four years it has hired three Wesleyan alumni in full-time positions.
The Niles, Ill.-based manufacturer partners exclusively with dance studios and dance schools to sell shoes, dancewear and costumes. Considered an industry leader in the U.S. and Canada, the company recently acquired DanceDirect, Europe’s largest dancewear provider. Learn More
