Wiltshire, is known as the silent wolf of the Amount Boyz, having the reputation of being New York's best-kept secret, which he considers an honor, and a great compliment to outspoken personality of his fellow founding an original member of the Amount Boyz, Antboogie. The idea of being a secret is more of an idea now than ever before, as ADub has built a reputation based of his smooth "in pocket" style of choreography and versatile dance ability. ADub, like Antboogie also has a strong background in classical training before carving out his current niche in hip hop/urban commercial dance and choreography. He grew up training in tap, jazz, ballet, modern contemporary, since age 3 and credits his training to Janet's Dance Studio, School Of American Ballet, Alvin Ailey, and Dance Theater of Harlem, as well as being a graduate of the "FAME" school, Fiorella La Guardia High School, alongside founder of the Amountboyz, Antboogie.
Adrian's transition into hip hop and training in the style came about as a result of the heavy influence that hip hop culture had on the youth of the 90's, as well as the wave of music videos that featured dance that were on the rise, using them to teach himself. This self interest, and growing ability, combined with his classical training that supplied him with precision and ease in exectuion of movement brought ease for him to transition into dancing at the professional level. The final piece to the puzzle was connecting with Anthony "Antboogie" Rue II and Javon Brewster, who had already founded the AmountBoyz as highschool clique, before then molding the group into an elite dance and entertainment group in years to come.
His professional dance career credits include work with, 3LW, Mario, Jojo, Ne-Yo, Omarion, P diddy, Big Daddy Kane, Kelis, Mariah Carey, Nelly Furtardo, Keyshia Cole and more. In addition to success in back up dancing with top artist, he has worked on many popular dance films; features such as "Honey", "Stomp the Yard", "DreamGirls" and most recently, the upcoming and highly anticipated 2010 release "Step Up 3D" directed by Jon M Chu.
Adrian's primary focus and current passion is choreographing. He has more recently been doing a combination of solo work (Due to Antboogie's current work with Madonna), representing the AmountBoyz as well as also assisting the highly esteemed choreographer Fatima Robinson. Resume credits include work for the artists such as the Black Eyed Peas, Keyshia Cole, Day 26, Jada, Ryan Leslie, The Dream; and also includes major award show, Fashion Rocks, VH1 Hip Hop Honors , BET Rip The Run Way.
His goal is to become a major film/DearMiaMiavideo director while still maintaining his passion to choreograph and contribute to dance. With his genuine love and dedication for what he does Adubz maintains, "In my eyes there's nothing I can't do...It's just a matter of perfecting your craft. There's a little of every role in me....I See it, I believe it, I claim it."
