Two-time Emmy Award-nominee Mandy Moore will spice up the FANTASY stage by choreographing the show’s new opening number. Moore, best known for her unforgettable work and role as a guest judge on the hit television series “So You Think You Can Dance,” is a world-class director, choreographer and dancer (Pictured: Cast of FANTASY).
She will travel to Las Vegas to teach the FANTASY ladies a new routine set to a mash-up of Little Mix’s “Salute” and Jordin Sparks’ “I Am Woman.”
Moore is most recognized for choreographing contemporary and jazz styles which have been seen on television shows including “American Idol,” “Dancing with the Stars” and “Modern Family,” as well as on stage for Celine Dion’s “Taking Chances” concert tour, Shania Twain’s Caesars Palace show “You’re Still The One” and “Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour” by Cirque du Soleil.
Her most recent work can be seen in commercials for Target and Amazon, as well as in David O. Russell’s Oscar-nominated films “American Hustle,” starring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, and “Silver Linings Playbook,” also starring Lawrence and Cooper. Moore is currently choreographing routines for the upcoming musical comedy “La La Land,” starring Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling and J.K. Simmons.
In addition to the new opening number by Moore, FANTASY also will be introducing three fresh routines to the set list. Headliner Jaime Lynch will slow things down as she soulfully sings “Try a Little Tenderness” by Otis Redding to accompany a graceful solo number. FANTASY dancers Sonya and Dar have teamed up with Gustavo Vargas to choreograph the show’s new country number set to Miranda Lambert’s “Little Red Wagon,” with vocals by Lynch. As a throwback to classic Vegas, director and producer of FANTASY, Anita Mann, will add new staging to Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas,” which will be performed by the entire cast.
