And the 2015 Cover Model Search Finalists Are…

June 14, 2015

It’s that time of year, everybody: Meet our 2015 Cover Model Search finalists!

There was an INCREDIBLY strong pool of applicants this year—the process of narrowing them down wasn’t easy. But us Dance Spirit editors were most impressed with these three beyond-amazing dancers (photographed by Erin Baiano):

Michelle May…

…Jordan Pelliteri…

…and Gabriella Stilo!

As you can immediately tell, these lovely ladies are repping three different styles—tap, contemporary and ballet—and we couldn’t be more excited about that. They’re basically the superheroes of their respective dance communities.

But which one will end up on the cover of our October issue? That’s up to you! Visit to see more photos and behind-the-scenes videos of the finalists, and to vote for your favorite. You only have one vote, and you only have until July 15th to cast it—so get busy.

Do you dream of winning our Cover Model Search contest? We’re currently accepting entries for 2016! It’s easy to get in the game: Just upload your favorite solo video (including your name, the title of the piece, and your age in the description) at Three finalists, chosen by the DS editors, win a trip to NYC, where they take classes, see Broadway shows and have a professional photo shoot—and one of them lands the cover of the October issue.
