  • Taylor Ruyffeleare


    Taylor is happy to make her return to the MRHS stage as a celebration of five years out of high school! After graduating as a Ram with the class of 2010, she went on to receive a Bachelor of Music Education from Pacific Lutheran University. Following this production, she will be taking her show on the road to teach general and choral music to elementary aged students in Arizona. Taylor has been an avid and lifelong participant in the Burien arts scene, both performing and working with Choral Sounds Northwest, the NWAA Youth Choral Education Program, The Hi-Liners, and Burien Dance Theatre. She was last seen onstage as Lorraine Fleming in The Hi-Liners production of 42nd Street. Her jobs with these organizations span from dance instructor to administrative manager, and stage manager to set designer. Footloose is Taylor’s first full-length choreographic endeavor, and she could not be more proud of the hard work, sense of community, and talent displayed on this stage tonight. Go Rams!
