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

Having never seen any production of "The Nutcracker" ever in my life, I wasn't sure what to expect when my wife and I attended this particular production of "The Nutcracker." It turned out to be a very nice show! The production values were good and the performances were great. Don't be discouraged to see this particular production just because it's done by ballet students and not professionals. These kids are very well-trained and do a great job!
Westside Ballet Company's production of The Nutcracker is a Southern California tradition spanning four decades. Tchaikovsky's classic ballet is about a young girl, Clara, who is given a nutcracker for Christmas by her godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. But this is no ordinary nutcracker as Clara learns that very night.
