October 13 to 25, 2015 at The Joyce Theater, New York City

For more than fifty years, works by José Limón have been performed by companies around the world, including the Royal Danish Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Paris Opera Ballet, Bayerisches Staatsballet, and more. Now, approaching the Company's 70th Anniversary, the José Limón Dance Foundation will bring to New York professional companies and important schools from abroad and the U.S. for a Grand Celebration of the works of the legendary choreographer, for two weeks, October 13 - 25, 2015 at the Joyce Theater.
Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, the Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American Modern Dance since its inception and maintains its standing as one of the world's greatest Modern Dance companies. The dances selected for the Festival reflect a span of Limón's creative output over the years, as well as the timelessness and humanity so cherished in his body of work.
