Now in its 60th year, the pioneering Paul Taylor Dance Company stages several of its acclaimed pieces at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Dubbed the "naughty boy" of dance by Martha Graham, Taylor's not only one of the greatest modern choreographers of the 20th century, he's also one of the 21st century's most daring innovators, still creating well into his 80s. His 16-member company embodies his continuing genius and nurtures new talent -- Tony winners Twyla Tharp and David Parsons are among its many distinguished alumni. Expect a wonderful show of kinetic movement, enthralling storytelling and surprising humor from one of the true legends of the form. Learn More

Nutcrackers come and go, but only one is so spectacular, so charming, so heart-warming and memorable that it has become Southern California's favorite.
For 18 years David Wilcox's production of The Nutcracker has been seen by over a million people at the Long Beach Terrace Theater, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, the Shrine Auditorium, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and on television.
Now performed by the beautiful students from his school and joined by world-famous dancers in leading roles, this production has once again made Long Beach the "Nutcracker Capital of Southern California."
