Trouper Tuesday: SYTYCD Alums and Broadway Babies Ricky Ubeda and Melanie Moore

For my first Trouper Tuesday, I thought I'd focus on two awesome dancers with one thing in common.  I'm talking about On The Town's Ricky Ubeda and Finding Neverland's Melanie Moore.  They are both champions of TV's So You Think You Can Dance.

Ubeda famously won his role in the revival as a part of his prize package, while Moore first appeared as Pan in the (controversial?) "preview" of  Finding Neverland with Jennifer Hudson on the Tony Awards.  Ms. Moore repeats her duties in that same show these days.






While I didn't get to see Ricky in On the Town, I bet he's terrific.  The guy's got some amazing skills, an inspiring amount of passion for his art, and an irresistible charisma.  I did get to see Melanie in her Broadway debut performance, and I'm pleased to report that her infectious smile and jaw-dropping contemporary, jazz and Broadway dance skills are nicely on display.  Moore has the added bonus of working with SYTYCD award-winning choreographer Mia Michaels.



These two Broadway Babies are Super Troupers!

Trouper Tuesdays will be my weekly spotlight on the kids in the chorus and the newbies to the Great White Way.  Of course, if you want to see someone featured, please make sure to Tweet me your suggestions (@jkstheatrescene), email me at jkstheatrescene@yahoo.com, or leave your thoughts in the comments below!
