Micaela Taylor’s, The TL Collective, is excited to make its Wallis debut this season! The LA-based dance company is known for their fusion of contemporary dance and theatrical hip-hop, including elements of groove accompanied by high-level athleticism that has received rave reviews. Micaela was named one of Dance Magazine's "25 to Watch," and has received choreographic commissions from Rambert2, BODYTRAFFIC, Carlos Acosta’s Acosta Danza, among others.
The TL Collective plans to perform twice in New York City this year, at the International Festival of Performing Arts in Panama with support from the USAI Grant, and with a national tour. The company has also received recent commissions from The Vilar Performing Arts Center, The Getty Museum, and a co-commission from American Dance Festival and Jacob’s Pillow. The TL Collective is now on the rise as one of L.A.'s emerging dance companies.
