Samantha Jo "Mandy" Moore (born March 28, 1976, in St. Louis, Missouri, and raised in Breckenridge, Colorado) is an American choreographer who is well known for her work on Dancing with the Stars and on So You Think You Can Dance, having appeared on the show every year since the third season. Moore was nominated for Emmy Awards in 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014, and twice in 2017.[1][2] She won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography in 2017 for Dancing with the Stars ("On Top of the World" and "Carol of the Bells" from Season 23). She has also choreographed duet and group numbers for So You Think You Can Dance United Kingdom, Canada, Ukraine, and the Netherlands.

Moore choreographed the 2016 film La La Land.[3] Rehearsals took place at a production office in Atwater Village over the span of three to four months beginning in May 2015. For the film, Moore emphasized emotion rather than technique.[4] The film received widespread acclaim from critics.
