Limon Technique Classes

  • Houston Station 434 Houston St Nashville, TN, 37203 United States (map)

In this week of classes, Carrie Gerow will guide dancers in an exploration of the classical Limon concepts of fall and recovery, suspension, rebound, and gesture, both within the traditional, historical Limon vocabulary and as dynamic principles injected into newer movement.

I want to present the most valid and historically accurate information I can, while also sharing something created “now” that is Limon inspired. I’d like to suggest that we can both honor and preserve the past and also depart from it on our own path, made the better by its inclusion...a sort of nod that it is neither dead and boring, nor so sacred that we can’t play with it, and change it- that we earn the right to mess with it by studying it with respectful integrity. We make it grow in scope and uniqueness with every generational addition to the research and work.
