Taylor Teen Ensemble3The Taylor Teen Ensemble, which is selected by audition only, will be performing ahead of Taylor 2 this Saturday, in a free Open House hosted by the Paul Taylor Dance Company at their studio on Grand Street.  The ensemble, in it’s third year, was started by director Raegan Wood, who came in to run the dance school, which was created after the company moved to it’s new location (lucky for us).

The company includes teens from ages 13 through 19 and rehearses three times a week.  “It’s a great opportunity for them to experience pieces from Paul’s repertoire. And it’s wonderful to see them striving to perform a master’s work,” says Wood. The young dancers also take classes and work on excerpts from Paul Taylor’s signature dances. They perform at up to a dozen different venues around the city each spring.
