We are beyond thrilled to offer an introduction to José Limón Technique with guest teaching-artist Jade Primicias beginning THIS SATURDAY. Jade studied with the José Limón Dance Company this summer and has been given permission to offer Memphis movers a glimpse of Limón technique as well as an opportunity to learn company repertory. The José Limón Dance Company comes to The Buckman Performing and Fine Arts Center on Sunday, October 2. What better way to prepare for this amazing performance than by dancing some of the repertory you will see that night!

*After studying with José Limón Dance company director Colin Connor and former Limóncompany soloist Dante Puleio, Jade is excited to have the opportunity to offer training in this style. This class series is geared toward the intermediate mover, as well as anyone with an interest in the Limón technique of modern dance. We’ll be moving in and out of the floor with fluid torsos and floating skulls – allowing the energy of our engagement to protect our joints and help us to move more efficiently. Each week, we will learn new phrases of Limón’s original choreography from the iconic piece “There is a Time” (1956) and Colin Connor’s “Corvidae” (2010), which the company will be performing here in Memphis this October.
Meet Jade Primicias!
Returning to Memphis after a summer of workshops and performances across the nation, Jade Primicias is excited to offer a class series sharing the wealth of inspiration she discovered. Jade holds two Bachelor’s Degrees in Dance and English and has studied various styles of ballet, modern, jazz, tap, Latin American dance, and “contemporary” in its many definitions, throughout the USA and UK. Her research and choreography have won national awards and have been presented internationally; for her Honors Thesis, Jade directed, produced, and performed in three concerts of structured improvisation and original poetry, two of which took place in England. Here in Memphis, Jade is excited to celebrate her first full season with Tennessee Ballet Theater, having performed principal roles in The Nutcracker and Coppelia, as well as having served as dancer, choreographer, and producer in the company’s premiere contemporary show. Jade is also involved in the Memphis dance community as a freelance teacher for local studios and as a contributing artist to Project: Motion Modern Dance Collective.
