Answers4Dancers is proud to announce that Michelle West is making her Broadway debut this month! 

We caught up with Michelle for some details on how she booked the role of Swing in Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. Here’s what she shared with us!

You know when they say ‘the best things

come when you least expect it’ … Well that’s what this Broadway debut was for me.


I was just finishing up the workshop of the new musical Goddess and I was auditioning for Christmas shows. My last thought was that Broadway was going to call. I was completely content with fulfilling my goals of training for a body building competition. Well, I guess that’s going to have to be put on hold!

When you work hard and are kind to people the best things are yet to come. I’m a testament of hard work pays off. I’m blessed to be joining the cast and company of Tina and growing in my career!

We met you long ago, Michelle, at an Answers4dancers workshop with A4D founder and award-winning choreographer Grover Dale … We all saw something special in you then … and look at you now!


Editor’s Note: When the industry shutdown ended Michelle’s time with the Aladdin national tour, she turned her efforts toward a new endeavor. Using her skills as a certified fitness expert, Michelle launched a motivational YouTube channel. She poured herself into creating her brand and now has an impressive following.
