Long Island native Owen Scarlett is a performing artist, choreographer, photographer, videographer and visual designer growing roots in LA. He attended Point Park University for Jazz Dance/Arts Management but also explored other areas of art and design.

He’s performed and explored work by Ohad Naharin, Fernando Melo, Sidra Bell, Mónica Cervantes, José Limon, Erica Sobol, Marguerite Donlon, Robert Battle, Toru Shimazaki and Shannon Alvis.
Owen has created works for several companies such as DanceWorks Chicago, Dance in the Parks and Visceral Dance Chicago. He has a great compassion for dance, and enjoys giving back to others in the dance community. In 2015, he founded Owen Scarlett Productions, a design/film production company. This company has allowed numerous dancers to market themselves cost effectively. Since then he’s been able to create digital work for non-profits such as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Visceral Dance Chicago, Rivernorth Dance Chicago and The American Cancer Society. There are so many outlets that fulfill his need to create. He couldn't possibly choose just one. He is thankful for that because he’s been able to connect with such beautifully eclectic people throughout his journey.
