Eileen Cooley got her Master’s Degree in Choreography from UCLA, but, choosing the course of lesser resistance, became a Lighting Designer specializing in dance.   Over a thirty year career she has worked with artists across a wide spectrum of dance including Bella Lewitzky, Francisco Martinez, Yvonne Mounsey, Carmen de Lavallade, Rudy Perez, John Pennington, Marion Scott, Jacques Heim, Rachel Rosenthal, Lynn Dally and Lula Washington.  She was Production Manager and Designer for the annual Dance Kaleidoscope Festival for over a decade and currently serves as PM/LD for the annual Celebrate Dance performance at the Alex Theater.  Recent designs include the Regina Klenjoski Dance Company, Rangoli Foundation, Pennington Dance Group, Mythili Prakash, Danza Floricanto/USA, San Pedro City Ballet, the On Ensemble and the National Children’s Chorus.  She has been honored with Lester Horton Awards for Excellence in Lighting and the Dance Resource Center’s Gary Bates Award for Service to the Community. PDF Design Portfolio
