At LBLC the label, one of our biggest pillars is animal welfare but another is finding ways to support the arts. Our Creative Director derives inspiration from the silhouettes created by bodies in motion. What better way to celebrate that than through the art of dance! We're honored to have the dancers of the dynamic Limón Dance Company wear our loungewear during their rehearsals for their 75th Anniversary season. We're so grateful to their Artistic Director Dante Puleio for introducing his incredible company to our brand. All of the styles you see on the dancers are included in a special collection with a portion of the sales going directly to supporting their artistry. Enter code LIMON at checkout.
Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, the Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since its inception.

Celebrating its 75th Anniversary Season at the Joyce Theater live in New York City on April 19th through May 1st with two weeks of performances, the company will perform two separate programs including two world premieres, three Limòn works that have been reconstructed using archival media in a way that has never been seen before, as well as beloved modern dance classics.
In Artistic Director Dante Puleio's first New York City season, The company takes you on a journey through Limón’s past and into the present. Going back in time to one of Limón’s earliest works, Danzas Mexicanas, pays homage to his heritage through 5 historic Mexican figures that shaped his cultural identity. The work has never been performed by the Limón Dance Company, having little footage and only José Limón's writings and drawings from his personal "Libro de Ideas" to aid in the re-imagination of his original 1939 solos. Further exploring the idea of legacy, the company revisits Doris Humphrey’s glorious Air for the G String, and returns to the original score for Limón's 1967 masterpiece, Psalm, which hasn’t been heard in over 40 years. To honor Limón as the greatest dancer of his time, the Company will be joined by preeminent dancers of this generation to perform his iconic solo, Chaconne. To truly encompass the entire timeline of Limón’s work the Limon Dance Company will be performing for the first time, Waldstein Sonata, the choreographer's last creation before his untimely death in 1972.
