Limón Dance Company

Acclaimed for its dramatic expression, technical mastery and expansive, yet nuanced movement, the Limón Dance Company illustrates the timelessness of José Limón’s work and vision. Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, the Company is now led by Carla Maxwell, who worked closely with Limón before becoming Artistic Director in 1978. The Company’s repertory, which balances classic works with commissions from contemporary choreographers, is of an unparalleled breadth, creating unique experiences for audiences around the world.

Limón Dance Company

The Limón Dance Company focused on movement and choreographic exploration with three choreographers who had not previously been commissioned by Limón. Participating choreographers were selected from a competitive proposal and review process. The primary goal of the program was to encourage artistic exploration in a supportive environment void of the usual time and financial constraints surrounding many commissioning structures, giving the company support for developing new work alongside their ongoing reconstruction efforts.
