For over 40 years, San Jose Taiko has mesmerized audiences with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of the taiko drums. Inspired by traditional Japanese drumming, SJT company performers express the beauty and harmony of the human spirit through the voice of the taiko as they strive to create new dimensions in music and movement. With fully choreographed, theatrical performances, SJT combines the traditional rhythms of Japan with other world rhythms, including African, Brazilian, Filipino, Latin, and jazz percussion, while resonating with the Asian soul in America. Nationally recognized for its artistic excellence, San Jose Taiko uses the power and beauty of taiko to transcend cultural barriers and foster a greater understanding of Japanese-American culture.

The American spirit soars whenever Taylor’s dancers dance.

San Francisco Chronicle

The Paul Taylor Dance Company, established in 1954, is one of the world's most highly respected and sought-after ensembles.

Dance maker Paul Taylor first presented his choreography with five other dancers in Manhattan on May 30, 1954. That modest performance marked the beginning of nearly 60 years of unrivaled creativity, and in the decades that followed, Mr. Taylor became a cultural icon and one of history's most celebrated artists, hailed as part of the pantheon that created American modern dance.
