We believe in education. Period. The foundation of a performer starts with just that, a solid foundation. There is no fast track; it takes time, focus and a dedicated teacher to reach each student’s potential. Our teachers are just that - dedicated teachers that are invested in the future of the performing arts.
We will be offering classes and one on one coaching in
My mission is simple. I do not believe in back rows or a center spot on stage. I believe in my students and believe that each one of them has a talent that is uniquely theirs. As educators, it is our job to help them realize that talent, give them the discipline to succeed, and encourage the spirit to love what they do.
My name is Angela Morando-Taylor. I am a dance and performance educator with over 21 years in education and performance under my belt! For the last 15 years I have been the dance director and coordinator for West Boca’s Performing Arts Acadamy, Boca Raton High School’s Drama Program and this year will be my third year with Palm Beach Central's Drama program as well. I believe in a solid education not only in the arts but academically as well. Knowlege is power!
I started my journey 34 years ago in a small town called Sugar Grove Pennsylvania. I was 7 at the time and wanted to be like my older cousin, so I started taking class at Linda Dies Dance Unlimited In Warren, PA. Little did my parents know that it would be the start of my life’s work.
My path has been a tricky one, Diagnosed at 16 with fibromyalgia, I had to learn to dance with a lot of pain, fatigue and frustration. Five years later while at Coker College, on scholarship, I would have two broken feet, collapsed arches and a broken heart. It was at this point I was told I would never dance again. This was all due to poor flooring and a weakened body. The following nine months were dedicated to my physical therapist and finding a way to dance again, I was very determined. The hard work paid off, I ended up at the Clevland Clinic were I was told I had five years tops if I wanted to continue to dance. I made it 11 years before I retired. I was smart enough at the time to know that my feet would never withstand the demand a concert dancer requires, so I decided to go into professional theatre. This is what makes my background a little different, I am educated in dance as well as theatre.
I am sharing my story with you because it helps support how I have come to this point, why I have become such an advocate for proper flooring, self care and true teaching, not demonstrating! I have learned the in’s and out’s of crushing disappointments, perseverance and empathy through my journey and use it every day in my teachings. Some hear my story and find it tragic but I am grateful because I would not be the person or teacher I am today with out it.
I believe every student that I come in contact with deserves the best of me, whether they want to go on to being professional or just love the arts and want to learn the craft for their high school career. They are all amazing!
