Taylor Kohlbeck

"Dance revolves around mind, body, and spirit. Through my work as a dancer and choreographer, my focus introduces psychological effects and brings realization and acceptance toward mental health. In society, emotion drives, grief has stages, we watch struggle, and we are bystanders. I believe that acceptance comes from realization and confrontation. In my setting, dance is therapy for the performer and watcher. Emotions are beautiful, and life is beautiful. The slightest physical touch is an explosion of acceptance. As a performer and choreographer, I want to confront the realization that we all struggle and through a struggling society, growth comes from harmony."

 

Taylor's profound dedication to her craft serves as an inspiration to aspiring dancers and artists, embodying the values of authenticity, perseverance, and positivity.
