This recording, which was not intended to document the dance work, consists of excerpts danced by the students, most of whom are in costume.

She can occasionally be heard from off-camera, counting or giving directions. [Interview with Daniel Lewis] (ca. 34 min.) / recorded outdoors at his home; interviewer, Ann Vachon. Topics include: his first contact with the Limón company; his studies with Limón at the Juilliard School; joining the company; his friendship with Limón's wife Pauline Lawrence; deciding between Limón and Martha Graham; becoming Limón's assistant, and directing the company after his death; the creation of Limón's Choreographic Offering; the influence of dancers Louis Falco and Sarah Stackhouse [referred to as "Sally"] on Limón's choreography; the creation of The winged; the benefits of Limón's association with the Juilliard School; Martha Hill's contributions to the dance world; anecdotes of Limón in private life. Cassette 2.
