Michelle's own journey began as a classical ballet dancer, with full scholarships to the National Ballet School of Canada, San Francisco Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and Joffrey Ballet, New York City. She chose to study at the Joffrey, and joined the Concert Group company soon after.
Later on, taking advantage of her early drama training and excellent representation, she moved to LA to pursue acting for TV, feature films, commercials. Michelle worked with Michael Bennett on the creation of the Broadway Workshop, "Scandal" and was a featured series regular dancer/actor on "Fame" with Debbie Allen for NBC TV.
Deciding to balance her performing career with her need to create, Michelle began choreographing, writing and directing stage spectaculars for Fortune 500 companies including Nike, DeBeers Diamonds, HP, Apple. Her earlier mentors included Russell Clark, Michael Kidd, Stanley Holden.
Now Michelle develops "people and projects" and is actively seeking sponsors and production alliances for several shows in development, including those focusing on fitness, health and wellness and dance.
Her clients are working on camera and behind the camera, on Broadway and in studio recording sessions. Clients include Kelli Berglund, now on "Lab Rats" Disney XD, Brian Lane Green, a Tony Nominee for "Starmites," Tera Correa Hendrickson, a working "triple threat" for TV, film, voice over and music, and other up and comers.
