Meet the 2015 Cover Model Search Finalists

It’d be hard to find three dancers more different than this year’s Cover Model Search finalists. There’s Michelle May, the crazy-talented tapper with a hip-hop edge; Jordan Pelliteri, the contemporary queen with tons of comp titles to her name; and Gabriella Stilo, the textbook-perfect ballerina with gorgeous banana feet.

But when these extraordinary ladies arrived in NYC for three days of shoots, classes and shows this spring, it was their similarities that stood out most. They’re united, above all, by their work ethic: These are some very driven dancers, and that dedication showed at their photo shoot and in classes at Broadway Dance Center. All three of them are also sweet, stylish and a little shy—though they’re quick to giggle at a silly joke. By the end of their big-city adventure, they’d totally melted the Dance Spirit editors’ hearts.
