The VOCAL Times: Steps Ahead / by VOCAL

Tricia Miranda

Training in dance since she could walk and a professional dancer and choreographer since 2001, Tricia Miranda has forged a career that has seen her perform with the likes of Prince, JLo, The Black Eyed Peas and Britney Spears. Her specialty as a choreography can now be seen in work by Beyonce, Demi Lovato, Missy Elliott, Super Bowl XLIX, Will.I.Am, Snoop Dogg, The X Factor USA, Ellen, AGT, SYTYCD, upcoming artist Sharaya J, and national commercials including Sears, FabKids, Nair and UNIQLO.

Showcasing the burgeoning skills of her dance students at Hollywood’s Millennium Dance Complex, Miranda has released a series of perfectly choreographed videos that, if not completely outshining, de nitely hold a candle to the original music-video choreography. Shot on-site in the dance studio, the high production value is a result of Miranda’s favorite director Tim Milgram – “Simply because he is the best and I only want my choreography to be displayed in the right light, and he does an excellent job of capturing my movement and the best angles of the dancers.” Many of her students are now blowing up among today’s most popular YouTube stars, such as Kaycee Rice, Aidan Prince, Charlize Glass, Kaelynn “KK” Harris and Gabe De Guzman
