Originally from Pennsylvania, Taylor Swift grew up in Reading and then moved to Wyomissing where she attended Wyomissing Area Junior/Senior High School. Passionate about horseback riding, she took part in many horse shows, but quickly turned to music hall.

Determined to make music her profession, the apprentice artist auditioned one after the other, but in vain, no door opened in her path. It was then on Broadway that she decided to enroll to improve her skills, with singing and dancing lessons on the program.
