Jose Limn is universally recognized as one of the most important modern dancers of the 20th century.  His technique is still taught at major colleges and dance schools; his dance company continues to revive his works, plus presents new works.  His most famous work, The Moor's Pavanne, has been presented around the world by ballet and modern dance companies.  This book presents a series of essays about Limn's life and works by noted scholars and dancers who were associated with Limn.  It serves as a perfect introduction to his choreography and legacy.  The book should appeal to fans of modern dance.
