PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY

The world-renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company closes out the American Dance Festival's main-stage season (but don't miss Vanessa Voskuil's free Footprints performance at Duke Gardens) with a rich program drawn from an eclectic repertoire. The quartet of works includes two pieces with music by classical greats and two with modern classical music. Promethean Fire, set to Bach keyboard works orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski, is followed by Images, where the music of another classical giant, Debussy, accompanies dancers whose movements evoke figures on ancient pottery. The second half features Profiles, set to Jan Radzynski's string score, and Snow White, with original music by Donald York, underscoring the company's knack for fresh takes on old themes. Given the large local following Paul Taylor Dance Company has attracted, this should be a highlight of the ADF season. —Jackson Cooper
