Choreographer and dancer José Limón is credited with creating one of the world’s most important and enduring dance legacies— an art form responsible for the creation, growth, and support of modern dance in this country.  Numerous honors have been bestowed upon both Limón and the Company he founded in 1946, including the White House’s 2008 National Medal of Arts for Lifetime Achievement. José Limón immigrated to the United States in 1918 and is considered one of Mexico’s greatest artistic exports, making him a role model for Latino communities throughout North America. His story is a powerful vehicle for reaching young people today. Limón’s rich repertory has been performed by dance companies, colleges, and conservatories throughout the US and abroad.

Give your dancers the rich learning experience of dancing a classic masterwork.

The José Limón Dance Foundation provides extensive resources for the reconstruction of its dances and educational materials that support the learning process and help engage the dancers in the work. Technique classes can also be provided in conjunction with the staging to enhance and inspire the dancers' knowledge of the work and movement.


Limón's experienced faculty, Company dancers and rehearsal directors share their personal experiences from learning the dance to performing it. Their extensive knowledge of the works, as well as their teaching experience, enables them to offer a comprehensive artistic experience.
