UApresents: Limón Dance Company

The spirit of the early modern dance pioneers lives on in the work of José Limón. Acclaimed for its dramatic expression, technical mastery and expansive, yet nuanced movement, his company illustrates the timelessness of Limón’s work and vision. Founded in 1946, the company is now led by Carla Maxwell who worked closely with Limón before becoming artistic director in 1978.

The repertoire, which balances classic works with commissions from contemporary choreographers, is of an unparalleled breadth. NEFA’s National Dance Project is generously supported with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MetLife Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, with funding for special initiatives from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, the French American Cultural Exchange and the McKnight Foundation.
