    Alan Danielson

    Limón

    Biography:

    Alan Danielson is a choreographer, teacher, and musician who creates and teaches contemporary dance in the Humphrey/Limón tradition. Since 1991, he has been the school director of the José Limón Institute in New York City. He is an internationally acclaimed master teacher of music and dance, and has been on faculty at New York University and the Alvin Ailey School. His company - Dance by Alan Danielson - has performed throughout North and South America, and Europe. His works have been commissioned by many professional and student dance companies. As a professional musician before he began dancing, he worked as a composer, conductor, and dance accompanist. He also teaches music for dancers, dance accompaniment, and teaching methodology.


    Class Description:



    These contemporary technique classes are based on the key elements of the Humphrey/Limón Tradition, and combine a strong technical base with a focus on musicality and freedom of movement. The body and mind are trained within the entire spectrum of dynamics - rebound, suspension, flow, tension, and release. A sense of weight and power is achieved through the constant interplay with/against gravity - fall and recovery. The classes aim to give dancers a humanistic approach to movement that is rhythmically-based and highly kinetic.
