Andy Taylor

Physical Conditioning for Dancers and Musicians

Andy Taylor’s BFA from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in dance included a Social Anthropology minor with studies in Music Ethnography and Pedagogy. Her degree has sent her into a career of professional performance and teaching of contemporary dance. She has taught Modern and Jazz at universities all over the country, including Harvard, Northeastern, Northwestern, Tufts, and others. Andy’s focus is on injury prevention and helping people learn about their instrument: their bodies. She has taught Focus on Form classes on Zoom, preparing people to return to dance.

At many nationally known dance camps in the US and Canada, Andy has taught dances from around the world, specializing in Hungarian, Mexican, Scottish, and Portuguese. She received the San Antonio Folk Dance Festival 2018 National Dance Award towards her work in promoting and teaching international folk dance (IFD) in TX and in the US. She received the TrailBlazing Women’s award from Cambridge, MA, in 2018 for her work in dance for elders and children. Andy enjoys teaching IFDancers to stretch, and she hopes these techniques will increase their enjoyment of dance and extend their dancing years.
