Jos#65533; 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. Jos#65533;'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 Jos#65533;'s soul.
With his heart to guide him, Jos#65533; 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 Jos#65533; danced, his spirit soared. From New York to lands afar, Jos#65533; Lim#65533;n became known as the man who gave the world his own kind of dance.
