Juan José Escalante to Step Down as Jose Limon Dance Foundation’s Executive Director
It is with both sadness and gratitude that we announce that our Executive Director, Juan José Escalante, will be stepping down from the position effective December 31, 2021.
Juan José leaves the José Limón Dance Foundation as a well-managed, financially solid organization on a trajectory of growth. After eight years in leadership of Limón, Juan Jose is leaving to pursue new horizons with another leading organization in dance. While we are not at liberty to disclose his plans, we wish him a bright and successful future in his new endeavor.
Over the next weeks, Juan Jose will be working with the staff and the Board to ensure a smooth handoff of his responsibilities. We are confident that the staff, with the support and oversight of the Board, is well equipped to ensure the continuity of an effective organization for our community, partners, and donors during this period of leadership transition.
The Foundation has begun the search process for our new Executive Director. The Board has appointed a search committee and an outside firm to assist us in this process as well as provide interim management support to staff and Board members.
The Limón Board, staff and dancers take this opportunity to wish a happy holidays and New Year to all our friends and supporters. We look forward with great excitement to seeing you again during our 75th anniversary season in 2022!
