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

The Limon Dance Company, an internationally acclaimed modern dance troupe, is currently celebrating it's 60th year. The dancers are of the highest technical ability with performance skills that bring their characters to life. I was immensly moved by their beautiful, thought-provoking concert and the amazing choreography.
Acclaimed around the world, the Limón Dance Company celebrates the 100th anniversary of José Limón’s birth with two premieres at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. The company’s clarity and expressiveness of movement embrace the humanistic approach to dance that was the vision of its legendary founder. The major revival premiere of Anna Sokolow’s groundbreaking jazz inspired "Rooms" (1955) set to an original jazz score by Kenyon Hopkins (performed live by Charles Owens and members of the Luckman Jazz Orchestra) and the world premiere of Clay Taliaferro’s newly commissioned work, "Into My Heart’s House," inspired by Limón’s love for the music of J.S. Bach is something that cannot be missed.
