José Limón Dance Company
Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, the Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since its inception and is considered one of the world's greatest dance companies. Led by newly appointed Artistic Director Colin Connor, the company's repertory is unparalleled in its breadth and includes classic works along with new commissions from contemporary choreographers.
Repertory by José Limón is performed by many leading companies, including American Ballet Theatre, Munich Staatsballett, and the Fondazione Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. The Limón Dance Company has recently performed commissioned works by Lar Lubovitch, Rodrigo Pederneiras (Grupo Corpo), Seán Curran, and Clay Taliaferro. The Limón dance technique is taught in university dance departments around the globe, serving as a fundamental movement language for generations of dancers.
