Peanut Butter & Jam: ¡José! By New Ballet Ensemble

Debuting in 2019-2020, ¡José! is New Ballet Ensemble & School’s newest touring show based on the life and work of the great modern dance master, José Limón. Inspired by the book José! Born to Dance, this show presents young audiences with a program that illuminates a variety of dance, music, and art genres from this era in history, such as Flamenco, Spanish guitar, and modern art, that inspired José Limón on his journey to become one of the most influential modern dance choreographers of his time.

GPAC’s celebrated Peanut Butter & Jam Family Series marks its 24th season this year. Part of our Arts Education Programming, the series introduces children ages 8 and under to a variety of genres including music, dance, and multicultural arts in an informal family concert setting.
