User Bio

Montreal born from French origins, Vermeulen began dancing at age five and immediately became passionate about performing arts. After six years of ballet training and a tour of Canada and the United States dancing Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal’s The Nutcracker, his focus shifted and by the age of 18 he had completed his College studies in Fine Arts.

He then rediscovered a passion for physical interpretation through movement entering at l’École de Danse Contemporaine de Montréal in 2008, from which he graduated three years later. During his studies, he danced in several short-films, including One and the awarded The Seventh Step.

Vermeulen has appeared as a model in a number of fashion shows and magazines, including Snap! Magazine and making the cover of Montreal and Ottawa’s 2B Magazine for his 2012 Der Untermensch financing campaign. He has been working closely with fashion photographer Cody Caissie on a number of editorials getting published.

Vermeulen has worked as a dancer for the Festival TransAmériques, Domy Reiter Soffer, Harold Réhaume – on a new musical by Martine Tremblay – and was cast in Marie Chouinard’s Orphée & Euridice during prestigious Springboard Danse Montreal’s intensive in 2012.

Early 2012, Vermeulen became the executive producer of his first dance-film, Der Untermensch and launched an indiegogo.com Financing Campaign featured on the websites’ Success Stories. Surrounded by director Kays Mejri and other field professionals, he co-wrote, choreographed and danced this new piece, abstractly depicting the treatment of homosexuals in concentration camps during the Second World War through movement.

In the interest of becoming a multidisciplinary artist, he attended an intensive training program at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts for which he received a Scholarship Award in 2011. He started training his voice in 2010 and moved to London, UK to pursue a Diploma in Popular Music Performance in 2013.
