One of today’s most in-demand choreographers, Taylor’s versatile 8-member company will perform Drift, a work called “stunning, powerful and insightful” by LA Dance Chronicle. Micaela Taylor is the face of the future, with one of the most critically acclaimed dance companies on the West Coast.

Equity Diversity and Inclusion in the arts

Equity - Diversity - Inclusion

White Bird believes in the transformative power of movement and its capability to uplift, inspire, and unite. Historically, institutionalized performing arts were built within a system of ingrained racism, sexism, ableism, and ageism, with the result being a field that does not prioritize the voices of marginalized groups. Our commitment is to break down these structures and to foster a community that not only represents a diverse range of individuals, but gives equal access and value to their voices.
