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.

Brianna Brosnan

Brianna Brosnan’s dance journey started at the young age of three. She is on her 18th year of dance and has trained in styles such as ballet, jazz, tap, modern, contemporary, hip hop, and choreography. She danced in a studio setting and attended an arts high school, Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, to further pursue dance. At this time, she joined APT directed by Pat Cruz and Matt Montenegro. This is where her journey into choreo and hip hop really began. Her studies of dance continued past high school and went into college.

Brianna is a recent graduate of California State University of Long Beach where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. In college, she received extensive training in contemporary, modern, hip-hop, and jazz. In doing her studies, Brianna learned about her interest in teaching and choreographing. While in college Brianna joined 220: Second to None, which is when she was immersed into the San Diego Dance Community. Brianna is also currently training on Voyage under the direction of Sorah Yang and Halima Dodo. Post college, Brianna continues to be a member of 220: Second to None and has recently become a director of their junior team 110. Brianna also joined the Building Block family and is excited to direct for the our Academy alongside Taylor Romero.

Brianna teaches all levels and ages of dance but finds teaching younger students particularly rewarding. Her love for teaching stems from her positive dance experiences throughout her life. Dance has always been a creative outlet for her, and she hopes to provide future generations with this same outlet. Brianna believes there is so much to be learned about oneself through dance, and she aims to help her students discover themselves and their passions.
