    Janet Pilla

    Limon Technique

    Bio



    Janet Pilla toured as a soloist of Ann Vachon/Dance Conduit (a company dedicated to the preservation of the Jose Limón Style) for 12 years, and currently dances in Philadelphia with Melanie Stewart Dance Theater, Jeanne Ruddy Dance, and Dancefusion. She has taught Limón repertory at colleges, universities, and companies in the US and abroad, and is currently adjunct faculty at Arcadia University. Ms. Pilla received her BFA in musical theater from Syracuse University, and her MFA in dance from Temple University.

    Class Description:
    Brown teaches technique classes 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.
