Now that doesn’t sound so extraordinary, does it? But this is the first time a major American modern dance company has performed a season at the Koch. This marks a major moment in the history of Lincoln Center, one of the country’s preeminent performing arts centers, and in the history of modern dance.
The company will perform 21 dances during its spring season. Some date as far back as 1956, and one is a new piece that Taylor choreographed just months ago. Taken together, the dances will highlight why Taylor has been acclaimed as a master choreographer whose work captures everything from darkness to humor, from ugliness to beauty.
Charles Reinhart, former director of the American Dance Festival, serves as Dance Chair for TDF’s Board of Directors

Earlier this week, TDF’s Young Patrons Committee hosted its first-ever Theatre Trivia Night. It was pretty amazing: Over forty theatre lovers competed to win TKTS gift certificates, and the evening was hosted by Broadway darlings Celia Keenan-Bolger and Sarah Saltzberg (both of 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee fame.)
But if you couldn’t be there, don’t worry: We’ve recreated our quiz online. Just follow this link, and you can answer all of the questions yourself.
(If you’re stumped, then you can find the answers here.)
And in case you don’t know: Our Young Patrons Committee is made up of young professionals, ages 23-40, who come together to create and participate in projects that raise awareness and support for the theatre and TDF’s programs .
If you’d like more information about the Young Patrons Committee (or if you’re interested in becoming a member), just contact Chris Reichheld at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-912-9770 x 341.

Patrick Berger is Theatre Development Fund’s Education Associate and an active member of New York City’s arts education community. Last month, he made a presentation on the future of the theatre at Theatre Communications Group’s annual conference. Here is what he learned and experienced there.
And don’t miss playwright Valina Hasu Houston’s complementary essay on what it means to make something “new” for the stage.
The future can be a scary thing. New technology, especially social media, is shifting the way people interact with each other and even with art. From June 16-18, I was able to join the mighty many of the U.S. theatre elite for the Theatre Communications Group’s (TCG) annual conference. The theme this year, which is also the 50th birthday of TCG, was inspired by the theatre’s increasing interest in its future: What if?
