Emmy-winning choreographer Mia Michaels—best known as a mentor and judge on So You Think You Can Dance—didn’t get where she is today by following the rules. As she puts it: “I didn’t have a choice to blend in. I was too weird. Thank God.” 
 
That’s why Michaels wrote A Unicorn in a World of Donkeys: A Guide to Life for All the Exceptional, Excellent Misfits Out There. As her body developed, it was clear
she didn’t have a “dancer’s form.” For several dark years, she gave up on dance. In finding her way back she learned how important it is for all of us to stay true to ourselves, to let our unicorn horns shine.
 
From stage to screen, Mia Michaels has turned dance into unique works of
passion & beauty. This year will mark the highly anticipated release of Mia’s first book,
a venture that will propel this multi-Emmy winner to even further heights. Not only is
Mia one of the most sought-after innovators in the world of dance, but she is also a
figure of inspiration to women around the world. One of Mia’s strongest talents is
finding the beauty within herself and in others.
