This book really shows the incredible skill of Jose Limon. I am a dancer and I really enjoyed this book because it clearly showed the technique of Jose Limon. I would suggest this book to any dancer because it really gives you new perspective on some types of movement. This book really made Limon's technique and movement come alive.

Beautiful book - mostly for dancers March 27 2005
By Annette Gaarden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a true expirience, but it is definately not for beginners in dance.I am a former dancer, now choreographer.

The book gives you a more than well insight in Jose Limons work and working-methods, and contains wonderful pictures. You get facinated and humble the more you know about Jose Limon.

The examples of exercises in the book is a valuable part of it. They are carefully written down, so you can follow them. If you can read notation there is a unique part with short pieces of choreographies.

I really enjoyed to read the book. Limons work comes even more alive and shows his uniqe technique. So if you are a dancer or have a good basic in dance, the book is highly recommed.

It is one of those books you just want to add to your collection.

My dance teacher uses this syllabus in class and we all love it. The different levels of exercises are perfect, as we can build upon them each week. THis is a very useful book.
