Paul Taylor Dance Co. brings modern dance to Centennial Hall
Today's world is very modern. We have modern art, modern interior design and even modern forms of cuisine.
But modern dance, despite its name, is often overlooked simply because people are not familiar with its form.
This weekend, however, the Tucson community will have the opportunity to familiarize itself with this contemporary dance style.
Lisa Viola, a dancer with the Paul Taylor Dance Co., said she was first introduced to modern dance after seeing one of Taylor's performances.
"My early background, before I actually saw the Taylor Company, was in ballet," she said. "My first modern dance concert that I went to see happened to be the Paul Taylor (Dance Company)."
