Born and raised in Los Angeles, Micaela trained in Hip Hop at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy. At 13, she joined Karen McDonald’s Modern Dance class at Dance Arts Academy and later pursued formal ballet training at the Marat Daukayev School of Ballet. She attended the Los Angeles County High School of the Arts (LACHSA) and in 2011, she moved to Seattle to attend Cornish College of the Arts where she danced with the Seattle based ANNA CONNER + CO, Zoe Scofield of zoe/juniper; and Kate Wallich, the founding artistic director/choreographer of Kate + The YC. She graduated with a BFA in Dance in 2014.
After returning to LA and working with Ate9 Dance Company and BODYTRAFFIC, Micaela launched her own company in 2015, The TL Collective (To Love). Since then, Taylor and The TL has presented Molecular Fuel (2016) at Highways Performance Space, performed POPMADNESS at the Grand Performances, Broken Bones at the Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz and most recently premiered the company’s first commissioned work titled ROSEWOOD at the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble. Their new work, Drift (2019) will be performed at Jacob’s Pillow this summer.
