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.

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.
