professionally In an interview Mia mentioned that she did not really dance professionally
The reason for this is that one time in an audition one of the judges said she would never dance professionally because of her body shape
After that encounter she decided she would create her own world of dance
Mia says in another interview that everyone should celebrate their life, celebrate when you gain weight, celebrate when you lose it, celebrate the good and the bad, because it is a part of your life One of the dances that I saw her dance live in is Chorus Line on SYTYCD Some of the most famous pieces by Mia Michaels are: "Gravity" with Kayla & Kupono, "Calling you" with Travis & Heidi, "Mercy" with Katee and Twitch, "Time" with Neil & Lacey, "Dreaming With a Broken Heart" with Kherington & Twitch Mia's career has been thriving through the 2000's She has been known for her powerful movements that engage the dancer's entire being, while reaching straight into the souls of those who are watching. Through this unique style of choreography, Michaels has found success both on stage and in film.
