Taylor LaBruzzo (BFA ’18, dance; faculty 2022-present) is a freelance dancer, passionate teacher, and versatile dance rehearsal director/assistant originally from Las Vegas and now based in New York City. Her role of rehearsal assistant for Juilliard Dance started as an apprenticeship in 2021 and was transitioned to a faculty position the next year. Now in her third season at the school, she has assisted productions and works by Aszure Barton, Larry Keigwin, Jamar Roberts, and Caili Quan. She dances regularly with both Barton and Brian Brooks and teaches contemporary dance at the School of American Ballet. In 2023, LaBruzzo was part of the world premiere of A a | a B : B E N D by Barton and Ambrose Akinmusire, taking place at the International Summer Festival Kampnagel in Hamburg, Germany, where she worked as both collaborator and rehearsal assistant.  

Since 2018, LaBruzzo has worked as rehearsal assistant to Peter Chu on several projects (including Juilliard New Dances: Edition 2018), was commissioned to choreograph for Juilliard’s 2019 Summer Dance Intensive, and has performed across the country with Brooks, including at the Meany Center in Seattle and at Jacob’s Pillow in the Berkshires. She has performed at Orsolina28 in Moncalvo, Italy, with choreographer Madi Hicks, a project where she also served as rehearsal director. LaBruzzo is a dance consultant with Collegiate Arts Prep and has taught at summer intensives in Fort Collins, Colorado, and at Steps on Broadway in NYC. She guest teaches at the Dalton School and travels as an adjudicator for Beyond the Stars Dance Competition.  

LaBruzzo trained in various dance styles at both Bunker Dance Center and the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, where she graduated as valedictorian in 2014. While at Juilliard, she performed works by choreographers including Crystal Pite, José Límon, Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, Pam Tanowitz, and Ohad Naharin. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Juilliard Career Advancement Fellowship. Grateful for all that Juilliard has offered, she is deeply honored to remain part of this incredible institution!
