About the Hook-Taylor Dance Award

We are thrilled to present the 6th Annual "Pooka Prize" to a deserving senior dance student or students to recognize their passion, imagination, and ability to take risks in the art of dance and/or choreography. This fund and prize award has been given by Paul H. Taylor, recognized dance photographer, in honor of his father Dr. L. Holland Taylor, who graduated from the University of Rochester Medical School after returning from WWII. Dr. Taylor set up his practice in Rochester which was in existence for over 35 years, where he and Paul’s mother Constance Taylor, were generous philanthropists for the arts in our community.
