Big Crowd Turns Out to Welcome Paul Taylor Dance Company to the LES

Must Read

From our friends at the Abrons Arts Center:

Hundreds of Lower East Side residents, dance aficionados and others came to Henry Street Settlement’s Abrons Arts Center on Sunday, November 8, to enjoy a free dance concert courtesy of the Paul Taylor Dance Company and the Abrons Arts Center. The concert, held to welcome and celebrate the dance company’s move to the Lower East Side, offered an afternoon of world-class dance by Taylor 2, the sister company formed in 1993 to bring the signature works of Paul Taylor — who made his stage debut at the Abrons in 1954 — to new audiences. By 1 p.m. the crowd formed a line stretching around the block. By curtain, every one of the 350 seats in the Abrons’ historic theater was filled. Nearly 100 people were turned away, a testament to the need for continued performance offerings in the neighborhood. Taylor 2 performed Company B, a lively piece set to songs by the Andrews Sisters, and Esplanade, featuring the music of Bach. “We are grateful to Paul Taylor for their generosity to the Abrons and to the Lower East Side community,” said Jay Wegman, Artistic Director of the Abrons. “We hope to welcome many of those who attended the dance concert — and those who couldn’t get a seat — to our upcoming performances at the Abrons.”
