Mandy Moore is a fantastic choreographer, if you didn't already gather as much from La La Land's stunning opening number alone. Moore has worked on plenty of movies prior to this, including Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, and Joy. Some of her best work, though, comes from Dancing With the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. In fact, her work on the latter has earned her four Primetime Emmy Award nominations! So, you know, next time someone praises the stunning choreography in La La Land, you'll know exactly what to say: "No, not that one."
