Jose was a boy with a song in his heart and a dance in his step. Born in Mexico in 1908, he came into the world kicking like a steer, and grew up to love to draw, play the piano, and dream. Jose's dreaming took him to faraway places. He dreamed of bullfighters and the sounds of the cancan dancers that he saw with his father. Dance lit a fire in Jose's soul.
With his heart to guide him, Jose left his family and went to New York to dance. He learned to flow and float and fly through space with steps like a Mexican breeze. When Jose danced, his spirit soared. From New York to lands afar, Jose Limon became known as the man who gave the world his own kind of dance.
