Biographical or historical data
David Lee Taylor was born in Chester, England in 1948. A graduate of Manhasset High School, Manhasset, N.Y. (1965), he has also received a B.A. in History from the University of Denver (1969). In the early 1970's, Taylor began his ballet training with the Denver, Colo. based dancer and teacher, Richard Denny. He danced with the Post Opera, Colorado Concert Ballet and Denny's Ballet Now. Taylor began choreographing in 1976 and established his own ballet school with locations in Black Hawk and Georgetown, Colo. in the mid-1970s. He subsequently founded his own dance company, David Taylor Dance Theatre (DTDT) in the fall of 1979 and a dance school in Denver in 1982. As Artistic Director (1979-2006), Taylor provided much of the choreography for the works performed by the company, including the much acclaimed productions of "Rain Forest" and "Nutcracker." In 1997, he and the DTDT received the prestigious Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts award. Taylor became Artistic Director Emeritus in 2006. With the beginning of its 33rd season (2011-2012), the company merged with another dance company located in San Francisco, Calif. The David Taylor Dance Theatre no longer exists under this name.
