Owner / Director
Sally Taylor Reyes has been studying dance for over 30 years and teaching performing arts to students of all ages for over 20 years. From an early age she has studied tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and musical theater. She studied under Mark Krupinksi in St. Louis where she was a dancer with the American Dance Troupe. She then studied dance and theater while attending The University of Texas at Austin. After graduating, she continued her dance studies as a scholarship student at Broadway Dance Center (in NYC) where she had the pleasure to study and take classes from such dance masters as Frank Hatchett, Mia Michaels, Josh Bergasse, Germaine Salsberg, Andy Blankenbuehler and David Marquez.
Sally has performed on stages across the country including Disneyland, regional productions in Saint Louis, and Austin’s own Zilker Hillside and Paramount Theaters. She has danced and worked with various companies including American Dance Troupe, The Young Americans, Naughty Austin, and Third Coast Jazz, not to mention performed in numerous musical theater productions. Some of her favorites include West Side Story, Guys and Dolls, Once Upon a Mattress, Oklahoma, The Wizard of Oz, The Good Times Are Killing Me, and various Broadway Revues.
Sally Taylor Reyes currently holds a BS from The University of Texas at Austin, several state certifications, including Dance, Drama, and Language Arts for both elementary and secondary levels within the Texas Public Education System, and an MBA from Texas State University. She is also a member of the Texas Association Teachers of Dancing. Though she has enjoyed each unique experience that has crossed her path thus far, she is most thrilled to now serve as director of the Greater Austin Dance Academy.
