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

It was excellent!!! A perfect Mother's Day evening for my mother and me. We were mesmerized by the moves, the music and the strenght of the dancers. The whole event was just excellent. We will look for the Rubberband dance company again as well as passing the word on.
Thank You Goldstar for the front row seats!

- "Where break dancing requires fine isolations and a hunkering compactness for low-to-the-ground spins, ballet emphasizes leverage and length. It’s satisfying to see both qualities fuse in one body.” --<em>Philadelphia Inquirer</em>
