Taylar began her journey in the arts at the age of 8 years old, performing in children’s musicals, then going on to teach hip hop dance from 15 to 23 years old. She has now circled back to her love for theatre, working for Bard on the Beach, and choreographing children’s musicals for her local theatre company. She is also a writer, running her own history blog, and hopes to publish a book one day. Taylar is half Japanese, 4th generation, and feels a special connection to her Japanese-Canadian heritage. Her family’s history can be traced all the way back to Japanese warrior Uesugi Kenshin from the 15th century.
