Taylor Chase

Taylor is a San Jose native but is still new to the dance community here. As a child she kick-started her love of dance and performing in dance shows through after-school programs in elementary and middle school. She later changed course and chose to concentrate on theatre performance and stage craft through high school and college, eventually pursuing it as a career and graduating with a BA in Theatre Arts from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2016. Still, she always wanted to go back to dance and continue improving her skills.

After starting back up again in dance at Ariel in 2017, she has focused on contemporary and hip hop, and has since begun participating in the seasonal productions with Ariel.
She is also a part of the dance crew Elemental Remix, lead by director Brandie Schweizer and co-director Lisa Gauyan, both teachers at the studio. She hopes to continue improving her skills in hip hop and contemporary, expanding her dance repertoire, and developing her abilities as a choreographer here at Ariel.
