José Limón Technique and Repertory

Event Type
Event Description
During Week 2, June 13 through 16, Brenna Monroe-Cook, another Academy/MOMENTA/Juilliard alumna will return “home” by flying in all the way from the José Limón Company’s tour to South Africa.
Brenna recently danced to great critical acclaim in the 70th Anniversary of the Limón Company—performing Carlota in their New York performances. Brenna also holds an MFA from University of Washington and has taught at Cornish College. She will be teaching Limón technique (a direct descendant of HumphreyWeidman—Doris Humphrey was the first artistic director of the Limón Company, and José was her great protégé coming out of the Humphrey-Weidman Company) and excerpts from the Limón repertory, including José’s great homage to Doris’ Choreographic Offering. This is for dancers inlevels 10 and 11, or with extensive experience in codified modern techniques. There will be a showing on Thursday, June 16 at 4 pm.
