Jose Limon Institute
The Limon Institute is the official school of the Limon Dance Company. Limon technique emphasizes the natural rhythms of fall and recovery, a conscious use of breath, and the interplay between weight and weightlessness. It is known for its inherent musicality, its wide range of dramatic expression, and its lucid humanism. All classes have live accompaniment, and are taught by outstanding teachers and former company members, including school director Alan Danielson, Jim May, Risa Steinberg, Geraldine Cardiel, Ryoko Kudo, Katie Diamond, Kurt Douglas and others. Special repertory workshops are offered by Carla Maxwell, Betty Jones, Roxane D'Orleans Juste, Nina Watt, Clay Taliaferro and others. A nine month professional studies program starts every September. Classes are held in the beautiful new studios of the Peridance Capezio Center. Visit the website or contact the school for more details.
