UMBC undergraduate Franki Trout received funding through an Undergraduate Research Award to study the ideas and principles of the Limón dance technique. Her research project involves mastering the Limón technique and the principles of fall and recovery, breath, suspension, and musicality that are characteristic of it. She is applying these ideas to her own artistic vision and creating a dance performance work that uses the principles of Limón technique in a new and exciting way.
