Company Member since 2013
Originally from Midway, Utah, Tess Hewlett began her dance training very early. At the age of 18, she was invited to join 19 other young dancers in the Scholarship Program at the Edge Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles. Completion of the Edge program prepared her to begin her professional dance career. Tess has enjoyed success in both commercial and company work. She has been featured in music videos, commercial advertising, films and television. A few of her credits include: Transparent (TV); Acura (Ad); Panera (Ad); Jay-Z, Pentatonix, Lawrence Rothman (music videos); EndHIV (PSA); Code Black (Documentary); and High School Musical 3 (film).
While these projects have provided an exciting diversion, Tess’ passion lies in live stage performance. She has had the honor of working with several companies throughout Southern California. In her eight years as a professional dancer, she has worked with some truly great choreographers including: Genevieve Carson, Kate Hutter, Nina McNeely, Ryan Heffington, Denna Thomsen, Erica Sobol, Becca Lemme, Holly Rothschild, Marisa Osato, and Will Johnston. Tess has found a home with LACDC and looks forward to continued growth with the company for many years.
