Limón Lovin'

This year marks the Limón Dance Company's 70th anniversary season, and what better way to celebrate the iconic modern choreographer than with a big party? October 13-25, dance companies from around the globe-including The Royal Danish Ballet and the Bavarian State Ballet-will perform some of Limdn's seminal work at The Joyce Theater. Nine student-dance companies will also take the festival stage, including dancers from Southern Methodist University, who'll perform Limón's There Is a Time. "It really speaks to the importance of the work when it's experienced on this level, with so many professional companies," says Patty Harrington Delaney, SMU's chair of dance. Will students get to mingle with company members? Longtime Limón Dance Company dancer Ryoko Kudo is hopeful for those kinds of interactions: "It would be wonderful if this opened more doors to collaboration and if we could continue to work together," she says.
