Paul Taylor
Solo steps to harmony
"In the world of dance, the British suffer a unique deprivation: we only get to see the Paul Taylor Company once a decade. So set your videos for Christmas Eve, because Channel 4 is screening the best film ever made about this choreographic genius. And if you havenít seen this New York company in action, it may induce you to move heaven and Earth to seek them out."

Just to say there's a marvellous piece by Louise Levene in today's Sunday Telegraph comparing various international styles and the way this affects ballet companies. There is no electronic version of the Saturday and Sunday Telegraph, alas, so it not possible to post the link.
