Taylor Stockstad-Yarmuth

Taylor began dancing at the age of three, but took a break after her initial two years and then officially fell in love with dance in the 6th grade and never looked back. She grew up dancing in Asheville, NC, where she trained in ballet, pointe, lyrical, modern, and jazz. Since then, she has performed and completed in various companies and groups. Taylor completed her undergraduate degrees in North Carolina and Michigan, then headed to Boston, Massachusetts. Here, she got her doctorate in occupational therapy from the MGH Institute of Health Professions. She currently works as an Acute Care Pediatric Occupational Therapist and absolutely loves working with little ones and their families. When not dancing she is enjoys snuggling her fur babies, traveling with her husband, or trying out a new dinner/brunch spot with friends. Taylor joined Danceworks because her little sister, Marissa, joined the season before her and she knew it was time to return dance and join this awesome community. She is so excited for her 5th season of Danceworks Boston and cannot wait to make her Danceworks choreography debut alongside her sister.
