Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts has announced the performances that will be part of its 2022–23 Dance Series.
This season, witness the spirit of Los Angeles with BODYTRAFFIC, established contemporary works with Dance Heginbotham and pieces by critically acclaimed and emerging international voices with Limón Dance Company.
“We have an exciting season of dance coming up at the center, including the Arizona premiere of Dance Heginbotham,” Diandra Adamczyk, senior programming coordinator for the center, said. “The company will be working with local musicians and dancers for its show, which will make the program much more special. We’ll also be presenting Limón Dance Company with a program of legendary and new repertoire, and we’re bringing back the much-loved Los Angeles-based company, BODYTRAFFIC.”
BODYTRAFFIC starts off the season with a performance on Friday, Dec. 9. BODYTRAFFIC uses the creative spirit of Los Angeles to fulfill its mission of delivering performances that inspire audiences simply to love dance.
BODYTRAFFIC is composed of artists who received their training at some of the finest schools throughout the world, including Alana Jones, Guzmán Rosado, Ty Morrison, Katie Garcia, Pedro Garcia, Jordyn Santiago, Joan Rodriguez and Tiare Keeno.
Following BODYTRAFFIC into the new year will be Limón Dance Company on Jan. 14. Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of dance since its inception in 1946, becoming the first dance group to tour internationally under the auspices of the State Department, as well as the first modern dance company to perform at Lincoln Center in New York and perform twice at The White House.
Limón Dance Company founder José Limón is one of the most important and influential dance makers; he spent his career pioneering a new art form and fighting for its recognition. It is with this ethos that the Limón Dance Company continues to commission works by critically acclaimed and emerging international voices 50 years after Limón’s passing.
Rounding off this start to the Dance Series is Dance Heginbotham on March 25, 2023. Founded in 2011, Dance Heginbotham has established itself as one of the most adventurous and exciting new companies on the contemporary dance scene, celebrated for its vibrant athleticism, humor and theatricality.
