Paul Taylor Dance Company was the first modern dance company to call Lincoln Center home after decades of performing at the New York City Center. Mr. Taylor viewed himself as a New York artist, and performing in his hometown has remained a tradition and priority.
Since their first European tour in 1960, the Paul Taylor Dance Company has performed in more than 520 cities in 64 countries, representing the United States at arts festivals in more than 40 countries and touring extensively under the aegis of the U.S. Department of State.
Current Artistic Director, Michael Novak, debuted with Paul Taylor Dance Company in the 2010-11 season which earned him a nomination for the Clive Barnes Foundation Dance Award. During his nine-year career he danced 57 roles in 50 Taylor dances—thirteen of which were made on him—and he created roles for five of the Taylor Company Commission choreographers.
