Paul Taylor


Dance maker Paul Taylor (1930-2018) was a member of the pantheon that created America’s indigenous art of modern dance. He won acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his works, while offering cogent observations on life’s complexities and society’s thorniest issues. During Mr. Taylor's 64-year career he choreographed 147 dances that are performed by the Paul Taylor Dance Company, Taylor 2, and dance companies throughout the world. The Paul Taylor Dance Company has performed continuously around the globe since Mr. Taylor established it in 1954.
