Meet Taylor-Nicole

Taylor originally from Willowbrook, Illinois, received her training at Salt Creek Ballet under the direction of Sergey Kosadayev and Zhanna Dubrovskaya. She enjoyed attending summer programs at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Lines Contemporary Ballet. In 2016, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Dance Arts Administration from Butler University. While at Butler, Taylor had the privilege of dancing overseas in the 35th Anniversary of Dance Conservatory of Eva Jacz in Bratislava, Slovakia and Butler Ballet's Eastern European Abroad Tour. Her repertoire with Butler Ballet includes works by Marek Cholewa, Susan McGuire, Cynthia Pratt, Derek Reid, Stephan Laurent and Patrick Hinson.
After graduation, Taylor pursued her dance training with the Lou Conte Scholarship program under the direction of Claire Bataille with the summer and fall session. This is Taylor's first year with the Chicago Repertory Ballet and she cannot be more thrilled to start her professional career with them.
