ABOUT THE ARTIST
A widely respected former member of the Limón Dance Company for more than a decade, Dante is the sixth Artistic Director in the Company’s 75-year history, a position that originated with Doris Humphrey. After a diverse performing career with the Limón Dance Company, touring in national and international musical theater productions, television, and film, he received his MFA from University of California, Irvine. Dante’s research focuses on contextualizing mid 20th century dance for the contemporary artist and audience. He is committed to implementing that research by celebrating José Limón’s historical legacy and reimagining his intention and vision to reflect the rapidly shifting 21st century landscape.
