Rylee Sanchez was born in Missouri and has been dancing since the age of 10. Her foundational dance was learned from Larkin dance studio, Code dance studio, and Priscilla and Dana’s school of dance. During this time, she has been traveling states to pursue more training in ballet, jazz, pointe, lyrical, modern, contemporary, ballroom, hip hop, musical theatre, and heels. She has been trained by mentors such as Travis Wall, Tricia Miranda, Talia Favia, Molly Long, Chelsea Jennings, Dexter Carr, Mark Meismer, and many more from studio work. Conventions and competitions she has been a part of are Nuvo, Radix, Jump, NYCDA, and The Dance Awards. She has been selected for scholarships from all these conventions and won first place in senior groups with Larkin Dance Studio.
After graduating she started at 17 years old working in the dance industry with drive and passion. She accomplished dancing professionally for theme parks, professional dance groups, and started improving her dance training in Los Angeles California at Millennium Dance Complex, Playground LA, and toured around at Kaos. Shortly after she started teaching, choreographing, and assisting in her hometown studio in Pleasant Valley Missouri. She has taught/choreographed kids of all ages in the styles of jazz, hip hop, and technique. She later made a big move at the age of 19 continuing her teaching/choreography career along with being a member of “The Squad” hip hop dance crew in Orlando Florida. With “The Squad” she competed at the World of Dance Finals in Los Angeles California and has been able to assist for Junior and Varsity Squad.
From many past experiences at such a young age Rylee’s goal is to share her guidance so others can learn early on to evolve as the best dancer they can be. With this goal, she hopes to continue to grow as a dancer, teacher, and choreographer with more knowledge to come in her dance journey.
