BB BABIES INSTRUCTOR

TAYLOR ROMERO

Taylor Romero began her dance journey at the age of six and has been dancing ever since. She has trained in multiple styles such as ballet, hip hop, breakin’, choreography, and house. In high school Taylor became a member of Dance Productions. Through this dance team she found her love for choreography and eventually became one of the Head Choreographers, as well as President. Taylor started teaching hip hop professionally at the age of 16 at Ramona Julian Academy of Dance.

She has been a Hip Hop Competition Coach at RJAD for four years where she choreographed award winning solos, duos, and team performances. In 2015 Taylor was introduced to the San Diego dance community and joined her very first team Urban FX. Taylor has spent many years training at Culture Shock Dance Center as well as being a part of their scholarship and assistant teaching program. In 2017 she was brought on as a weekly instructor. Taylor has taught at many studios all over San Diego including Culture Shock Dance Center, Studio FX, and RJAD, as well as being a guest choreographer for many high school shows.

In September 2017, Taylor auditioned for GWOWNUPS directed by Carlo Darang and Amor Ledesma. She spent three years on this team and is forever grateful for the opportunity to grow alongside such dedicated dancers. In February 2021, Taylor graduated from nursing school with honors and is currently working as an RN at a local San Diego Hospital. Taylor believes in being a student for life by always seeking opportunities of growth. She is currently furthering her training on Voyage, a training team under the direction of Sorah Yang and Halima Dodo. Taylor has been a part of Building Block since 2018 when she joined as a sessions coordinator. Here at Building Block, she is currently the Head of Coordinating, the lead BB360+ liaison, and a Director for our Academy.

Taylor loves being an instructor and getting to help her students grow into the best versions of themselves is one of the things she cherishes the most. Her mission is to create a safe supportive learning environment for children to reach developmental milestones, while helping them build a foundation in movement by instilling a love for learning through dance.

ANA ABRICA

Ana Abrica’s passion for dance has been growing since her first ballet class at the age of four. She was always fascinated by live performances and music videos. Although she grew up in a town with very little resources, she knew that going to college would be her chance to experience what dance had to offer.

In 2015 Ana started a new journey training in hip hop with Melissa Adao, one of her biggest inspirations. From there she was able to experience a variety of different styles including Jazz and Modern. With all of her new knowledge, Ana decided to audition for Major League Crew in 2018 and made her first team. After being introduced to the San Diego dance community, she began to invest her skills into the scholarship program at Culture Shock Dance Center. Due to her time spent in this program, she was offered the opportunity to assist Taylor Romero with her youth classes, as well as sub and help prepare multiple sets for Culture Shock’s Cabaret Night. She is forever grateful for the opportunity as she learned what it was like to not only be a dancer, but also an instructor.

As Major League Crew’s chapter came to an end, Ana further pursued her dance career by auditioning for Culture Shock Dance Troupe in 2020. Under the direction of Sean Memije, she continues to train and learn valuable lessons in dance. She aspires to be true to herself as a dancer and instructor and hopes to one day inspire those that learn from her. Ana is excited to continue her journey at Building Block and is eager to connect with more students. Her mission is to share her love and passion for dance with the next generation while also providing a safe space for growth and self expression.
