“When I was three, my sister was six and in ballet like every other little girl. My parents would bring me to her classes and I would try to dance with them from the hallway. They assumed I’d like it, enrolled me in class, and I never stopped,” says CBII dancer Taylor Carrasco of his ballet beginnings. Carrasco, 18, is from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has trained with the New Mexico Ballet Company and School of American Ballet, and has taken summer intensives with Boston Ballet, Ballet Chicago and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Carrasco’s favorite dancing memories thus far are tied to dancing with his sister, saying that “sharing the stage with family is the best experience”. Carrasco is looking forward to learning Victoria Morgan’s choreography for Frisch’s Presents The Nutcracker, and working on ALICE (in wonderland) because of the impressive sets and costumes.

Fun Fact: Taylor says he has an obsession with succulent plants, and Marie Antoinette!
