About

Acclaimed for dramatic expression, technical mastery, and expansive yet nuanced movement, Limón Dance Company is under the new artistic direction of Colin Connor and perpetuates the timelessness of José Limón’s work and vision. “Performing with luscious spontaneity” (The New York Times), Limón Dance Company brings the immediacy of the classics to life while at the same time performing vibrant, new choreography commissioned for the company.

Today, the company represents a changing “definition of humanity” with a “new kind of rawness” (Dance Magazine). Program will include works by José Limón and Kate Weare.

A vanguard of American modern dance since its inception in 1946, Limón Dance Company is a thriving legacy of José Limón and his mentors Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman, whose innovative works revolutionized dance in America. After making their Pillow debut in 1946, the company achieved considerable fame and recognition, known for being the first modern group to outlive its founder.
