Within the close knit community of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Mette has had tremendous opportunites to work for, and collaborate with music artists, choreographers, dance companies, and filmographers like fellow Minnesota native Brad Ogbonna.

Mette has been priviledged to travel the United States performing in music videos, commercials, various theaters, and art galleries. In 2011 she traveled to Port of Spain Trinidad to perform at Makeda Thomas' New Waves institute where she fulfilled her passion of research and speaking out about the social justice issues she has studied.

Musically, Mette has had the opportunity to dance for Minnesota artists such as Allan Kingdom, Michelle Kenney of Jello Slave, and producer Greg Shutte.

Since moving to Los Angeles, she has worked for Jennifer Hudson on Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve, and in her recent music video for the single, "I Can't Describe".
