Taryn Mohl began dancing at age three, having received most of her training at Showcase Dance Studio in Manassas under the direction of Crystal Carfagno. After graduating high school, Taryn danced with Mayzsoul Inc, performing at Capital Fringe Festival and at Holiday for Hope, a holiday charity event for Dream for Kids DC. As a student at Northern Virginia Community College, Taryn was a founding member of the student dance ensemble NOVA Dance Company and also performed extensively with Beth Elliott Dance Group (BEDG) in various dance concerts and events on and off campus, including several Small Plates Festivals and the NOVA’s Favorite Dance competition. Taryn recently performed with BEDG in “Mother, Sister, Daughter,” a full-length work that premiered in Honolulu at the Oahu Fringe Festival in February, 2015.
Taryn will perform a solo excerpt of “Mother, Sister, Daughter” at Small Plates in March, 2015. Her solo, “Little – The Crybaby” was created . Her movement ideas, meaningful gestures and characterization of the little sister inspired major themes of both her solo and the full-length piece.
Taryn recently transferred to Virginia Commonwealth University where she studies psychology and dance.
