Taysha Canales is an actor working primarily in the greater Philadelphia area. As a Nuyorican (a native New Yorker of Puerto Rican descent!), she have always had a burning desire to incorporate the culture and history of her people into her art. Just as Rita Moreno, Lin Manuel Miranda and Gina Rodriguez, she wants to be known as a Puerto Rican American who is committed to breaking barriers through Art. Taysha’s dedicated work to theatre for young audiences as a performer and a Teaching Artist are tied to her aspirations to educate and inspire generations of children to be proud of who they are and unafraid to be themselves.
