“Architecture has always offered a close parallel to the dance: to me choreography is a form of architecture. Great dance – Les Sylphides, Primitive Mysteries, Passacaglia – are monumental pieces of architecture. They are miracles of planning, construction, and beauty.”
José Limón

Works available range from large group pieces to solos and duets.

  • While original choreography required both male & female dancers, casting can be flexible in educational settings.

The length & time required to stage a dance varies with the work chosen & the institution acquiring it.

  • A typical staging is accomplished within a 1 – 2 week intensive residency.
  • If there is a gap between the initial staging & the performances, the reconstructor will return for the final tech rehearsals before the performance.
  • Whenever possible, the reconstructor will teach Limón technique in conjunction with the staging.   This will greatly improve the dancers’ artistic performance and understanding of the work.

The institution will be provided with a production packet that includes:

  • Rehearsal audio CD  (The institution will be responsible for making licensing arrangements for the music, if required.)
  • Program notes
  • Information on original costume, set & lighting designs

The reconstructor is provided through the Foundation & will have full artistic control over all  production & supervision of all artistic aspects of the setting of the work.

Licensing fees:

  • Licensing fees for universities, colleges & schools include the reconstructor’s fees.
  • The institution will be responsible for the reconstructor’s travel, housing & per diem.
  • The licensing period is for one academic year.

At the conclusion of the licensing period, we request a video of your performances, a copy of the program & any press/reviews that apply to the work.
