Taylor’s love of dance began at the age of 3. She grew up dancing at Upstate Carolina Dance Center under the instruction of Kimberlee Ferriera and Heather Owens. She danced on 3 competitive dance teams until the age of 18 winning three National titles and immediately became an instructor. Taylor has studied all forms of dance including Ballet, Contemporary, Improv, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Tap and Clogging. Taylor’s work has been nationally recognized with many Overall and Choreography Awards, including two “Choreographer of the Year” Awards in 2013 and 2014. Taylor not only enjoys giving her students knowledge in technique and style but also loves sharing her love of self expression. She nurtures individuality by challenging them to step outside of the box through musicality and unique movement. In Taylor’s words: “If you dance with your heart, your body will follow”. While sharing her passion of dance with others, she strives to make a profound impact on her students by giving each individual their own identity as a dancer. She is so excited to be a part of the DC family!
