Paul Taylor American Modern Dance
The Paul Taylor Dance Company was founded in 1954 by Paul Taylor, who is widely considered to be one of the foremost American choreographers of the 20th and 21st centuries. He has continued to win acclaim for his recent creations as well as stagings of his earlier works. As prolific as ever, he may propel his dancers through space for the sheer beauty of it, or use them to wordlessly illuminate war, spirituality, sexuality, morality and mortality. The Paul Taylor American Modern Dance employs 16 dancers and has close to 150 dances in its repertory.
