[Interview with Betty Jones, part 1] (ca. 42 min.) / recorded at Duke University in Durham, N.C., during the American Dance Festival, summer 1996; interviewer, Ann Vachon. Betty Jones, who danced with the José Limón Dance Company from 1947-1972, discusses her first meeting with Limón at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival; her acceptance into the company; dancing in Doris Humphrey's Corybantic; her observations of the working relationship of Limón and Humphrey, his artistic adviser; her distress at recent reconstructions of Humphrey's choreography; how she began to teach and assist Limón in his classes; the evolution of her own teaching, incorporating aspects of ballet and Dr. Lulu Sweigard's movement theories; and Limón's use of music. Jones, who is a pre-eminent teacher of the Humphrey-Limón style, shares her insights into its special qualities and values. Cassette 2. [Interview with Betty Jones, part 2] (ca. 61 min.) / Betty Jones discusses working with Doris Humphrey; Limón's wish that his technique should not be codified; Daniel Lewis's book [The illustrated dance technique of José Limón, c1984]; the creation of Limón's masterwork The moor's pavane, in which she danced the role of Desdemona, the Moor's wife; the question of how much dancers actually contribute to choreograph; Limón's sense of humor; the frugality of his wife Pauline Lawrence [referred to in the discussion as "Pauline-my-wife"]; the contrast of his apparent lack of religiosity and the religious vein in many of his works; his enjoyment of bawdy jokes; dancing in Limón's There is a time; the importance of breadth, the use of space, and strength in dancing his choreography; his unwillingness to analyze or explain his works in rehearsal; possible interpretations of his work Missa brevis; his enjoyment of working in his native Mexico; his enduring belief in the nobility and goodness of man; and the many functions performed for the Limón company by Pauline Lawrence, with examples of her acerbic wit.
