'Cooley' Jackson. Danced on Solid Gold for about 3 seasons. Replacing Alex Cole, 'Cooley' brought the street/break dancing element to Solid Gold. Anita Mann wanted to bring that popular trend to the show and who better than the man who taught Michael Jackson his famous "moonwalk". 'Cooley' had no formal training when he started on Solid Gold. 'Cooley' started on Solid Gold at the very beginning of the 4th season and left at the end of season 6 (as did most of the of the other dancers).
