  46. Jay says:

    I hardly ever see tap dancers on a cover of a magazine. I know Michelle will get very far. From the videos she seems like a nice inspiring person. She also does not seem greedy like other dancers. If she does not make the cover she will not feel down she will get back. GO TAP DANCERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
