Paul Taylor Dance Company

Vibrant, relevant and powerful modern dance

Choreographer Paul Taylor is a cultural icon and one of history’s most celebrated artists. He is hailed as part of the pantheon that created American modern dance and, as a result, has been awarded nearly every important honor given to artists in the U.S. His work is often on the cutting edge, known to offer cogent observations on life’s complexities while tackling some of society’s thorniest issues.

The Paul Taylor Dance Company, established in 1954, is one of the world’s most highly respected and sought-after ensembles. The company has traveled the globe many times over, bringing Paul Taylor’s repertoire to theaters and venues of every size and description in cultural capitals, on college campuses and in rural communities.

Join us after the performance in the Pavilion for a post-performance conversation with Bettie de Jong, Michael Dostal, company manager, and a few of the dancers.
