The Taylor School

Welcome to the Taylor School!

As the educational wing of the Paul Taylor Dance Foundation, the Taylor School is committed to providing high-quality dance education to students of all ages, from introductory classes to rigorous professional classes, from tiny tots to elders. Through a wide range of classes, formats, and activities, the school seeks to nurture, sustain, and advance the field of dance by sharing Paul Taylor’s rich repertory, fostering the talents of budding choreographers, and exposing students to a wide range of dance styles and techniques. As an American art form, modern dance has emerged from its inherent multiculturalism. The Taylor School embraces the rich history of the field while providing innovative dance education initiatives and seeks to produce the next generation of dancers, dance makers, dance audiences, and dance advocates.

We invite you to explore the world of Taylor with us. 

—Carolyn Adams, Director of Education
