At Limón we have some exciting new programs designed to help young dancers enter the contemporary and modern dance worlds as confident and compelling professionals.
Specifically designed for recent graduates, Limón Artistic Director Colin Connor has created 2 distinct yet linked 3-month programs for young dancers looking to deepen their artistry and training while simultaneously gaining a strong foothold in the NYC dance scene. Our goal is to provide pre-professional and professional dancers with the tools to dance in a supportive environment, over a condensed period of time, so that dancers can successfully launch and/or enhance their careers.
As you well know, most young dancers have been in school for 16 years straight by the time they graduate, guided by fine teachers. LimónPro and LimónLaunch can help them take charge of their futures, land healthily in New York, and develop into self-generating artists ready to enter the dance world.
LimónPro and LimónLaunch each include daily technique, classic and contemporary repertory, performance techniques, audition readiness and reflection, private coaching with Limón Dance Company members, and exciting performance opportunities. With different opportunities and focus, they can be taken separately or together.
Here is a sampler video of the Company to give you an idea of our belief in individuality and technique that can feed every dancer. Colin even chose a student to perform with the Company this year!
