Book Description

Jose Limn is universally recognized as one of the most important modern dancers of the 20th century.  His technique is still taught at major colleges and dance schools; his dance company continues to revive his works, plus presents new works.  His most famous work, The Moor's Pavanne, has been presented around the world by ballet and modern dance companies.  This book presents a series of essays about Limn's life and works by noted scholars and dancers who were associated with Limn.  It serves as a perfect introduction to his choreography and legacy.  The book should appeal to fans of modern dance.



June Dunbar is a celebrated dance teacher, having run the Lincoln Center Student Program in dance at Juilliard for over 25 years. She lives in Connecticut.


"This treasure of a volume brilliantly records the luminosity and dramatic power of one of the finest performer-choreographers of the 20th century in 13 sparkling, readable, unique chapters...Dunbar, who also contributes the warmly personal final chapter, has created a masterful work that fills the void of information between the present and 1942, when Limón's own writings concluded.
