Licensure points available. College credit available through the University of Utah.

Limon Technique is not a codified training, but is based on principles from Doris Humphrey and Jose Limon. Teachers use sequences and progressions passed down through the generations, and they also work creatively with the principles, in search of training methods that help in both technical and stylistic foundations. The expectation for a Limon teacher is that the pedagogical approach, while faithful to the physical and philosophical principles, is individual, alive and evolving.

Because of this, Limon teachers in particular can profit from mutual exchange. In addition, as understanding of fundamental aspects of the technique, such as the fall/rebound/suspend dynamic patterning, is necessarily experiential, working in a classroom setting with feedback from experts is a crucial element. It is regenerative for experienced teachers, and a vital educative tool for young Limon teachers or teachers interested in including aspects of Limon principles in their work.
