The Paul Taylor Dance Company Comes to Snipes Academy

Paul TaylorFourth and fifth grade students at Snipes Academy of Arts and Design will have the opportunity to work with the Paul Taylor Dance Company during their enhancement period on Wednesday, October 22, 2014. The opportunity comes through collaboration between Snipes, the University of North Carolina Wilmington and Thalian Hall.

Paul Taylor is hailed as one of the world's most important living choreographers and is bringing his troupe to Wilmington in celebration of the company's 60th anniversary. The Paul Taylor Dance Company is one of the earliest touring companies in American dance. Today, Taylor continues to win acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of both his recent dances and his classic works. His meticulously choreographed dances draw from influential moments in American cultural history, putting his characteristic humorous and lighthearted spin on these themes. His appearances are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council. Visit ptdc.org to learn more.
