Paul Taylor established Taylor 2 to ensure that his works could be seen by audiences all over the world, unhindered by economic or technical limitations. Mr. Taylor worked with longtime colleague Linda Hodes to create a company that could accommodate performance requests as well as teach and provide community outreach. Mr. Taylor looked back to the 1954 origins of the Paul Taylor Dance Company for the structure of his new company: six professionals with a particular gift for his style who perform his work throughout the world.

"One of the most exciting, innovative, and delightful dance companies in the entire world." --New York Times
"The American spirit soars whenever Taylor's dancers dance." --San Francisco Chronicle
"One of the most intelligent, stylish and physically magnificent dance troupes we have." --New York Magazine
"Paul Taylor Dance Company dazzles the eye and lightens the heart." --The Detroit News
"The most inventive and versatile choreographer alive today... One of the few indisputably great dance companies in the world." --New York Post
"Paul Taylor Dance Company is perhaps the most beloved and respected modern dance company in the world, famous for Mr. Taylor's wit, its sunny expansiveness, its all-American optimism and its occasional forays into darkness and gloom." Dallas Morning News
"Paul Taylor's dancers are so terrific, you don't know who's luckier -- they to have him or him to have them." --The World of Dance, WQXR
"America's most magnificent dancing machine performing America's most deeply communicative and wildly theatrical modern dance." --San Francisco Examiner
"A major interest is in seeing how ingeniously Taylor has edited his work for a six-person ensemble -- half the size of the original... This version of Company B is not a patched hand-me-down, but a lighter and more intimate creation that delivers the same emotional knockout." -- Robert Johnson, The Star-Ledger
"Taylor 2 has provided many dancers to the larger company, but this is in no sense a student venture; the dancing was spectacular, warm, gracious and daring. The repertoire is one to make a Taylor fan salivate, four great and very different works in one evening... The more intimate Joyce stage enhanced many of the more dramatic moments... All six dancers were terrific." -- Mary Cargill, Dance View Times
"If modern dance is well, too modern for you, catch a performance by Taylor 2. Their performance of Aureole was ballet let loose" undeniably beautiful and incredibly romantic, but danced with a joyful abandon." --Kay McLain, The Herald-Sun Durham, NC
