My goal is to work in Bollywood: Emmy Award-winning choreographer
Mia Michaels, an Emmy Award-winning choreographer, wants to make a mark in Bollywood
Mia Michaels has worked with Madonna, Ricky Martin, Celine Dion and Tom Cruise. Now, the Emmy Award-winning choreographer wants to make a mark in Bollywood and says she would like to work with Deepika Padukone.
Michaels also expressed her love for the art of Indian filmmaking. "My goal is to work in Bollywood. I am putting it out there because I have loved the Bollywood world for many many years. I got familiar with it through So You Think You Can Dance. I love big production numbers and I love creating them," she says.
"My favourite film is Bajirao Mastani, and I love Deepika Padukone. She is my favourite. She is amazing because she dances with so much passion. There is something very authentic and very passionate about the work in Bollywood. I would love to do something where I can infuse my style into the Bollywood style and explore, or collaborate with a Bollywood choreographer."
What about working with Deepika? "That would be amazing."
Michaels says she grabbed the chance to come to India and join dance reality show Dance India Dance Season 6 as a challenger.
On her maiden India trip, she said: "The trip has been amazing from the moment I landed in Mumbai. It has just been incredible with such warm welcome and lot of love. When I got an email and an invitation to come and be a part of the show, it was perfect timing for me and I was like, 'Let's go and let's do it'. It was an opportunity to come to India and see the dancers, the culture, and see what is happening over here."
