Limón Dance Company will return to Cleveland on April 22 for a mixed repertoire performance, blending the classic with the new. The performance is co-presented by DANCECleveland and Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The company will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, in the Mimi Ohio Theatre at Playhouse Square.

In addition, the evening will include Only One Will Rise, a new work exploring the resilience of the human spirit by Burkina Faso-born choreographer Olivier Tarpaga. Also on the program are Chaconne, a work Limón choreographed and performed himself, and Doris Humphrey’s iconic Air for the G String.
