Mia Michaels on the Kelly Alexander Show
Don't forget to check out our show this week as the wonderfully talented Mia Michaels of So You Think You Can Dance joins us for a chat about how she got her career into high gear by working with A-List celebrities like Madonna, Prince, and Celine Dion. She also shares what it is like to be a judge and choreographer on the highly popular So You Think You Can Dance.
