Dubbed “a dancing entrepreneur” by The New York Times, choreographer Glenn Douglas Packard has worked with some of the biggest acts in entertainment including Pink, Marc Anthony, Missy Elliot, Nelly Furtado, Whitney Houston, Usher and Liza Minelli. He was even honored with an Emmy nomination for his artistic direction on Michael Jackson’s 30th Anniversary Celebration at Madison Square Garden.
Glenn grew up in the small town of Clare, Michigan, working on his family’s dairy farm. He planned to take over the family business until at 19 years old, his entire world was turned upside down. Glenn was in a devastating tractor accident that broke his back and nearly cost him his right leg. He was hospitalized for a year; infection spread over his body and almost took his life. While lying in the hospital, Glenn promised himself that if God helped him recover, he would do the one thing he always dreamed of doing. He would enroll in dance school.
Glenn took his first dance class at the age of 21. Shortly thereafter, his newly acquired moves and natural vocal talent landed him a coveted spot on manager Lou Pearlman’s (Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC) newest boy band phenomenon “twONEty’ (21). The group toured Europe, hitting 75 cities in 15 countries. During this time, Glenn was also introduced to another Lou Pearlman star project, Brooke Hogan. The two became fast friends.
Meanwhile, Glenn’s dancing career was flourishing. In addition to choreographing the music videos and stage performances for many of today’s top music icons — and being asked to offer a special performance to Morroco's king, Mohammed VI - Glenn’s work was featured on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” and on HBO. He also reinvented the world-famous Chippendale’s for their 25th Anniversary. Glenn’s direction and choreography remains in their New York City, Las Vegas, and European shows to this day.
Glenn launched Tattooed Angels in Miami and he recently added pal Brooke Hogan to Tattooed Angels’ impressive roster of superstar talent. He choreographed Brooke’s tour and first music video, “Everything to Me.”
Through seven years of friendship, the bond between Glenn and Brooke is a tight one. When Brooke made the decision to move back to Miami, she asked Glenn to move with her; he did. Brooke and Glenn now share an apartment together with roommate Ashley and their antics can be seen every week this summer on the hit VH1 reality show, BROOKE KNOWS BEST.
