Mia Michaels, well-known for her groundbreaking work on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, has collaborated with artists like Madonna, Celine Dion and Prince. This summer, she joins us at Radio City Music Hall as not only choreographer, but as director of our New York Spectacular.
From a very young age, Mia fell in love with New York City. It was all about her craft and artistry, and she did everything she could do be involved in New York City’s dance world—from selling pointe shoes to ballerinas to teaching classes at Broadway Dance Center. “Right away people loved my style,” says Mia. “I became a huge teacher here in New York City. New York was my home and New York is where I became an artist.”
Although Mia has been much more than a choreographer for quite some time, this is her first official director credit which she is beyond thrilled about.
