Shaun Michael Taylor-Corbett (October 6, 1978)[1] is an American actor, singer and writer, and is the son of choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett and Music Executive Michael Corbett. Shaun is of Native American descent and has three sisters.[2]

Taylor-Corbett graduated from the University of Delaware. It was there he sang for an a cappella group called the University of Delaware YChromes. He was also the vice president of the university's World Peace Club and was an honors student. He had vocal training from Shirley Callaway. After college, he joined The New York Public Theater, where he performed Shakespeare. He also joined the Harrington Theater Arts Company and appeared on All My Children many times. He also appeared as Romeo in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet at the McCarter Theater.[3]

In 2003, he joined the American counterpart to the Australian kids' show Hi-5. In Hi-5, his segment is Shapes and Space, where he would play with play objects, as if they were real life objects, like a giant pyramid and an underground tunnel. He would also explain the functions of shapes as well as performing three songs in each show: solo and as part of the Hi-5band.[4]

Shaun left Hi-5 in 2006 to further pursue his performing career. He played Juan in the hit Off-Broadway musical Altar Boyz from July 3, 2006 - May 6, 2007.[5] He is currently appearing on Broadway in In the Heights.[2][6][7][8][9][10][11]
