Hands on hips, impatiently waving her fairy wand, my dramatic little three-year-old announced that she wanted to go to dancing class with her best friend. ‘Sure’, I thought, ‘Sounds like fun.’ Nine years later, she lives and breathes dance. From musical theatre to Classical ballet, she loves to perform; her smile lighting up the stage with the pure joy of entertaining.

The Ziegler sisters, most famous for the hit U.S television series Dance Moms, came to Australia and New Zealand last month to host a meet-and-greet dance spectacular for their biggest fans, with the tour lead by Australian renowned choreographer Marko Panzic.

Dance Writer speaks to Australian female tap artist Brianna Taylor about her recent international success with Nick Young's Rhythmatic Tap Company. 


You are a tap sensation not only in Australia but also in Paris and now LA! How does it feel knowing you are the first Australian to be accepted residency to Nick Young’s Rhythmatic Tap Company? Was it an open audition process or were you approached? 

I couldn’t be more grateful for these opportunities I’ve had in my career and I am humbled to be apart of Rhythmatic Tap Company and Nick’s vision for our new show ‘On Top of the World’.
