I sleep really well.”

Lord knows she needs the roughly seven hours of rest she squeezes in. “We always laugh about it, my team, because it feels a bit like a circus,” she says of her many roles on the series. “You’ve got different hats on and every couple minutes you’re like, ‘Okay, that’s a producer hat, that’s a director hat, that’s a choreographer hat, that’s a therapist hat, that’s a coaching hat, that’s a teaching hat, that’s an oh-I-need-to-be-a-human hat and actually pay my bills.'”

But operating a whole millinery is a small price to pay for such an, um, extraordinary gig. “When you’ve got dance and music involved,” Moore raves, “there’s nothing like it.”
