Born in Mexico in 1908, Jose Limon with his family was uprooted in the 1910 Mexican Revolution. Settling in California, he left for New York in 1928. After two years of studying dancing, he made his Broadway debut in 1930. For the next 30 years, Limon moved between choreography and dance, becoming known as one of the world’s greatest modern dancers and choreographers. Besides forming his own dance company, Limon earned two Dance magazine covers, and twice choreographed the premier performances of the American Dance Festival. Limon continued to choreograph works for his company and teach at the Juilliard School of Music in New York until his death in 1972.
