2wisted elegance


2wisted Elegance L.A. was founded by Seattle native, Jaret Hughes, and former Director, Joey Cooper in 2008. It was a private company in which members were selected by invitation and only the most talented dancers within the dance industry were selected to showcase performances at leisure. Inspired by Pop Icon Janet Jackson, the dance company became well known for its swift precision based choreography. Their style...commanding, aggressively intricate, with inventive music mixes to compliment the projects, has carved a lane for their incredible work. Tackling frequently Janet Jackson’s own work, the company is known for doing tributes to Janet to great acclaim. As 2Wisted Elegance L.A. progresses forward, they continue as and "invitation only" dance company.

Jaret Hughes eventually returned to Seattle to continue working and reestablishing Twisted Elegance Seattle, while Joey Cooper continued their work dutifully in Los Angeles by ramping of frequency of projects. Shortly afterwards the idea arose to take the company into a standing roster, so the ability to mentor dancers could be initiated.

In 2016 2wisted Elegance L.A chose its very first principle cast of dancers in an endeavor to produce its first full length show “2ruth or Dare.” While in the process of creating the show, the participants had their experience elevated with an on-going study, loosely of Ontology. The dancers began getting lessons in the nature of their being, becoming, and existing within the realities they associate most frequently. Conceptually, that meant looking at how they went about their everyday lives, and how that would impact their performance in the practice of their craft. It has remained a goal for the company members to understand the importance of the role they play in their craft, how that impacts others around them, and how they can help others benefit from their actions.

The company continues its efforts to create pieces that appeal both to the need of fulfilling escapism and obligation. By exercising creativity under these two aspects, the company members are provided real-time opportunities, within the Commercial Dance Industry and Exhibition Dance Communities. For example, securing work with legendary industry choreographers who have worked with Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Prince, Missy Elliott, and Madonna. The company produces dancers so that they are prepared for greater platforms that showcase their aptitude for their craft. Joey's newly selected successors are Co-Directors Erica Soliel and Brandi Taylor.
