Bringing Taylor repertoire to companies and institutions worldwide.

For over fifty years, Paul Taylor Licensing has allowed dance companies and dance departments in universities and schools to experience the work of the choreographic master. Directed by Taylor alumnus Michael Trusnovec, our licensing projects are facilitated by a professional stager and provide a comprehensive collection of reconstruction and educational materials to support the complete process from studio to stage.
