INTRODUCTION

to Limon technique

With Miranda

This is an excellent course for non-dancers interested in learning Modern Dance, beginner dancers wanting to improve their abilities, or seasoned dancers who’ve never studied this particular style but wish to understand the different use or bodyweight, fall, suspension, and coordination that the Limón Technique offers.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

José Limón can be added to the list of choreographers who developed their own signature training styles. In the dance world today, it is typical within professional training programs for students to be trained in both the Graham Technique and Limón Technique styles of Modern Dance. 

Modern Dance has evolved with each subsequent generation of participating artists. Artistic content has morphed and shifted from one choreographer to another, as have styles and techniques. Even elements of urban dance have become well represented in this genre.

In this course, we will focus on the basics of the Limón style whose technique was informed by Humphrey's ideas about the dynamics of body weight as the body rose, fell, and remained in suspension during a dance. This technique improves a dancer's quality of movement and adds strength while developing dynamic and exciting movement qualities. 

Because of Limón’s unique use of space, weight, and music, it’s an excellent introduction to dance in general. It can be broken down into simple exercises that can be later enhanced to challenge more seasoned dancers. Limón Technique improves one’s coordination significantly. The style differs from other techniques often by; working off-balance, with multiple layers of movements, and with the body in an inverted position. Thus, making; turns, jumps, and extensions more difficult.
