Taylor is a 16-year-old student at Santa Barbara High School. This is her 3rd year dancing with SSBYD, joining GD in 2007, and has greatly enjoyed being apart of this program. Taylor is experienced in jazz, contemporary, aerial, hip-hop, musical theatre, etc; but ballet is her passion. Taylor has performed many roles in Rudolph, The Nutcracker, Celebration of Dance, the Emerging Showcase, spring performances; and has studied with SBDA, as well as State Street Ballet, over the Summer. Outside of dance, Taylor is very involved in school with both academics and community service. Taylor loves to travel, play the piano, ski, and engage in a multitude of outdoor sports, with friends and family. She hopes to continue dancing far into the future, and is excited for another great year of SSBYD!
