Paul Taylor, March 12, 2010

Dance has no words.  The dancers move to express themselves.
Here are some of the verbs that might describe Paul Taylor’s choreography.

 Leap
 Explode
 Jump
 Crawl
 Fold
 Sigh
 Turn
 Revolve
 Sashay
 Puzzle
 Think
 Decide
 Seduce
 Repel
 Bomb
 Primp
 Slink
 Twist
 Reconnoiter
 Consider
 Cross
 Examine
 Point
 Hide
 Slither
 Somersault
 Backwards Somersault
 Rise
 Propel
 Wave Good-Bye

Since this is his 80th birthday year, there is a feeling of celebration and holding dear the great creative energy we have grown to count on year after year.  When he came out to take his customary bow, Paul Taylor looked a little bit shorter than last year.  Long may he live.

  1. Your list of words would make a good structure for a dance improvisation!

  2. Yes, I would love to see that.
