ABOUT MICAELA TAYLOR: Micaela Taylor is making waves in the dance scene with her new movement style, called "Expand Practice," which allows the artist to expand their mind, body and narrative. It encourages the freedom of expression through movement and facial expressions amplified within a group element by embracing the creation of bodies dancing together as one collective. During a poignant time characterized by divisiveness, Micaela's choreography is one that strikes a chord to connect us all - reminding us of the importance of tolerance and cohesion in a world of social distancing.
Her work with the highly acclaimed musicians of her All Star Band will draw from music she naturally vibes with, including early 90's R&B. Inspired by the staccato foundations of hip-hop, her style draws from a hybrid of musical genres rooted in clear classical lines forming style uniquely her own.
Micaela was the recipient of the Inaugural Springboard EMERGE Choreographic Award and recently named one of Dance Magazine's "25 to Watch," 2019, and was on the cover of Dance Magazine in May 2020. She is trailblazing in the city of Los Angeles and beyond.
