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

Acclaimed L.A.-based modern dance ensemble Lula Washington Dance Theatre returns to the Luckman for a performance featuring the works of Donald McKayle. The 10-member modern dance troupe, based in the inner city of South Central Los Angeles, has risen to become one of the largest and most admired African-American dance companies on the West Coast. Composed of young, athletic dancers, many of whom were groomed in Washington’s inner city dance studio, the company is known for exploring theatrical, entertaining, and energetic works that are accessible to all audiences.
