125. Making Master Plans with Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore brings movement to mega musical movies, TV shows, commercials and beyond… But let’s be clear, she does WAY MORE than make up steps. This episode digs into Mandy’s path to mastery, her process, her team and style of leadership, and yes, even her struggles. We talk about what it means to be a woman head of department in show business and, yes, we have a great time and laugh a lot while doing it.


Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why Mandy always has a plan… AND a backup plan… Or two
  • What great dancers and great choreographers have in common
  • The key people and lessons that made Mandy the leader she is today
  • What choreographers do (hint: more than make up steps)
  • What Mandy thinks about her team and being a woman in a leadership position on set
  • The value of jumping into the deep end when it comes to creation and production
