Artist in residency with PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY

A community tribute to the legacy and influence of Paul Taylor


The PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY is one of the world’s most celebrated contemporary dance companies. Based in New York City, the troupe was founded by Paul Taylor in 1954. Taylor performed in the companies of Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham and George Balanchine before launching his own. 

Taylor’s work helped shape and define the art of modern dance in America. The accomplished choreographer passed away on August 29, 2018, leaving an incredible legacy of dance.

Omaha Performing Arts hosts PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY on April 20, 2019, at the Orpheum Theater. To highlight the performance, we’re inviting the community to join us in celebrating the life and influence of Taylor.
