The performing arts centers at the University at Albany and The Egg are pleased to present Limón Dance Company as part of the 2022-23 Dance in Albany series. 

The Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since its inception. Limón is credited with creating one of the world’s most important and enduring dance legacies.  Greatly influenced by his Mexican heritage, Limón’s choreography has had significant impact on the creation, growth and support of modern dance in the United States.

Acclaimed for its dramatic expression, technical mastery and expansive, yet nuanced movement, the Limón Dance Company illustrates the timelessness of Limón’s work and vision. The company’s repertory includes classic works in addition to new commissions from contemporary choreographers.  Currently led by Artistic Director Dante Puleio, a former member of the company for more than a decade, the company concentrates on celebrating Limón's historical legacy and reimagining his intention and vision to reflect the rapidly shifting 21st century landscape.

The company’s program will include Doris Humphrey’s Air for the G String along with three works by Limón: Orfeo, Chaconne and The Waldstein Sonata, the latter being completed after his death in 1972 by then company member Daniel Lewis.

The performance is presented in cooperation with Union College where the company will be in residence on Thursday, October 20, 2002. Free and open to the public, a master class on the Limón dance technique will be offered at 6pm followed by a lecture/demonstration at 7:30pm, both at the campus’s Henle Dance Studio.  More information can be obtained by calling the college at (518) 388-7129.
