Logan Hassel

You know the dancer choreographers are dying to set work on because they know it’ll look good—whether it’s a soft contemporary piece or a jazzy 8-count for a commercial? That’s 14-year-old Logan Hassel. She’s danced on “The X Factor,” the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” performed with Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Girls in a Macy’s Passport show and toured the country as Clara in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Last year she even had a speaking role on “Modern Family.” Not bad for a small-town triple threat (yup, she sings, too)!

“There’s a lot of competition in L.A. Sometimes you just need to breathe, and say to yourself, ‘I got this.’”
