Ms. Taylor has performed at Dance Theater Workshop, Lincoln Center Summer Dance Festival, New York City Center Fall for Dance Festival, and The American Dance Festival at Duke University. While overseas Ms. Taylor performed with the Redwing Blackbird Theater in Austria (Barber of Seville), and studied flamenco with Alicia Vega, Antonio Canales, Manuel Betanzos, Rosario “La Farruca” Montoya, and El Charo Cruz.
