    Risa Steinberg is internationally known as a solo artist, teacher, and director of the works of José Limón. Born in New York, and trained at the High School of Performing Arts and The Juilliard School, she was invited by Limón to join his company, where she danced for 11 years. Cited by the Village Voice critic Deborah Jowitt as “One of our great modern dancers,” Ms. Steinberg has performed as a guest artist with the companies of Bill Cratty, Daniel Lewis, Annabelle Gamson, Anna Sokolow, Danzahoy of Caracas, American Repertory Dance Company of Los Angeles, Colin Connor, Wally Cardona, and Séan Curran. She has reconstructed Limón works for companies around the world, working with such artists as Rudolph Nureyev, Frank Augustyn, and Karen Kain. She is presently a guest faculty member of The Juilliard School, and continues to teach extensively throughout the world.
