Thanks for taking the time to speak with us. Curious, are you now a permanent employee of the show, or do you just come on for certain weeks?
Then the top eight, the top six, and then, hopefully, the finale. I loved that statue piece that you did two weeks ago with [dancers] Melanie and Marko. That was pretty amazing. I was really proud of that one.

When you choreograph a piece like that, is it largely formed before you even work with the dancers? Or do you wait to work with the dancers and figure out what they can do and then tailor the piece to them? I was a contestant on the show so I experienced some choreographers not fitting a routine to my body, or not showcasing what I do best… they might just kind of come in with a pre-planned notion. Our job is to get people to vote for them and have America like them.
I really do choreography on the spot. Is there some stress involved as a choreographer on the show? Then it does become about the choreography and not about the dancers. One and a half on the first day and three on the second. How much did they work on their own? And obviously Melanie and Marko did that.
They really got the partnering down, and a lot of it was hard. I gave them a really hard routine because I had two amazing dancers. Everything changes every day. I want to talk to you about that piece from last year between Neil and Kent. There was actually some emotion in that piece. So, honestly, was that about an ex? What was that about? But it was a best friend of mine, a best friend that I really cared about and was close to for two years… and was like my brother in more ways than one.
It was something that happened to me, and it was really crazy when it happened. Somebody sent me these tweets between you and Dom [Palange]. I had a boyfriend back when I was on the show, and I had some crazy things happen to me in the past four years with weird relationships.
Melanie Moore Boyfriend Scoop: Is She Dating Marko Germar?
Like, not really a boyfriend relationship, but something else. But this is my first like actual boyfriend and actual relationship. How long have you guys been together? Three months last week. So tell me about this upcoming reality show. The show is about me and three of my best friends. Everyone [in television] is trying to touch on the dance scene and show what dancers actually do.
And we wanted to show it right. We have a huge house. Is Dom going to be involved in the reality show? Is this for a particular network, or are you guys working with a production company? When I was 18 and on the show it was very stressful to find the balance of being yourself and coming across in an authentic way.
And maybe they get points for that with voters it seems like. So that has now become a tradition. Where did you get your acting training from, other than the School of Danny Burstein? I have never taken an acting class, which is crazy! I did the dance lab [of Fiddler because] I wanted to work with [choreographer] Hofesh [Shechter], because he is unbelievable.
I had some privates with Kristin, and then Bart would bring me to edge of the scene so I was basically sobbing and yelling at Danny and then he would bring me all the way back so I was very calm and appealing to his sensible side, and then we kind of ended up somewhere in between. We had the full spectrum. I guess I just got the acting lessons on the job.
I think for all of us this show is a difficult one for us to conquer.

So many people have experiences with Fiddler, specifically. We wanted to really layer in a lot of the realities of the situation. What's your favorite number or scene to perform in Fiddler? I watch it every day from the wings. How has the transition from the dance world to Broadway been? It was something that happened kind of naturally.
I was working in L. Then the first audition I went out for was Finding Neverland. Melanie Moore and Jennifer Hudson Wow, so you booked your first audition? Yeah, and it was a perfect fit! It was something that was very new for both of us! She had never done a Broadway show and I thought she did such a beautiful job.
I walked into the room for an undisclosed choreographer for an undisclosed Diane Paulus project and [there was] Mia! What was your audition song for Finding Neverland and for Fiddler? So, for Neverland they asked for a British pop rock song, so how could you not go with the Spice Girls?
And it turns out that Elliot Kennedy [who wrote music for Finding Neverland] actually wrote songs for the Spice Girls. It just felt like it was very in the character of the three sisters, so I just went for it. Are you close with your family? My Mom is just my hero.
