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

Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company presents Diciembre Mexicano, a journey through Mexico's rich traditions, folklore, and dance forms focusing on the culturally significant month of December. A month of myriad holidays, ceremonies, and traditions, it can be said that December marks the high-point of the Mexican calendar when it comes to religion and folklore. Religious and cultural life in Mexico being often times so intertwined that they are indistinguishable, Diciembre Mexicano touches upon this beautiful complexity and promises to be an exciting and familiar evening of folklórico at its best. The group continues their commitment to the preservation of authenticity in stylings and interpretations of their work- mixing in the perfect amount of innovative spices.
