Mary Hinkson (Mar 16, 1925 – Nov 26, 2014)

The José Limón Dance Foundation joins with our dance family around the world in celebration of the life of Mary Hinkson. Mary was and will continue to be one of our most important artists, not only for her luminous performances, but for her teaching, generosity, love for the art of dance and great humanism. She was a great artist and a spectacular woman and human being. She touched thousands of lives around the world with her extraordinary teaching and beautiful soul. We will be dancing with and for you Mary, for many generations to come!
