Biography

Photo of Amy Taylor Alpers

Amy attended The Julliard School for Dance and later performed with The Garden State Ballet in New Jersey. She received a B.A. in Dance and a M.F.A in Dance History from New York University. Amy also taught ballet at various dance schools in New York City for ten years.

Like many New York City dancers in the mid 1980s, both Amy and Rachel found themselves at the Pilates Studio where Romana Kryzanowska was carrying on the work of Joseph Pilates. Little did they realize then that in the following years they would witness the near extinction of Pilates and then play a significant role in the rebirth of the industry as well as becoming an integral part of Pilates history.
