After graduating from Juilliard, Taylor began his performance career with the Martha Graham Dance Company. He started his own troupe in 1954 and ushered in a new era of groundbreaking choreography, musical choices, and artistic collaborations. Now 81 years old, Taylor has been creating work encompassing a wide range of topics and movement styles for the past 55 years. He has been awarded nearly every honor known to the artistic world, including an Emmy for his work, Speaking in Tongues, in 1992, and the National Medal of the Arts in 1993.
