Company is a singular noun, will remove options with they.

D is incorrect, incorrect reference of who.

Out of C and E

Since 1972, this indicates present perfect tense

C is talking about the future by using will- incorrect, This is not the intent.

E is correct by saying, legacy has still continued.

IMO E

I chose C as opposed to OA E. Doesn't E change the meaning of the sentence by removing "will". This means they have perpetuated only until today but will not be doing so into the future.

A couple things in response:

1) "has continued" doesn't necessarily mean that the action won't continue into the future. "Since...has" indicates an event that started in the past and is still ongoing ("It has been raining since 10am" means that it's still raining...there's no end specified there).

2) There isn't any "incumbency" to the meaning expressed in choice A, so I'd avoid using "it changes the meaning" as a way to eliminate answers. Think about it - 80% of the time the original sentence / choice A is wrong, and most grammar errors are errors precisely because they produce an unclear or illogical meaning. You just can't use that as a standard - if A were "A GMAT tutor for Veritas Prep, Brian's response to my GMAT Club post..." the meaning expressed by that modifier error is that my response to your post is a GMAT tutor, which is a clearly flawed meaning. You can't try to preserve that meaning in the other choices!

3) A really important point comes out of choice C. When you have an auxiliary verb like "has" or "do" - where the action verb is implied based on its presence somewhere else like "Tom set out to win the game, and he did (win the game)" you have to fill that "blank" next to the auxiliary verb with the exact verb in the exact form it appeared elsewhere in the sentence. So in C, the auxiliary verb "has" has to refer exactly to the verb "perpetuate," and "has perpetuate" is incorrect.

my evaluation of answer choices is as follows(in blue)

The Limon Dance Company believes that, since the death of Jose Limon in 1972, they have and will continue to perpetuate the shared artistic vision of Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey, who both choreographed works in the company's active repertory.

A. they have and will continue to perpetuate the shared artistic vision of Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey,
this one has a serious pronoun error, they refers to the singular entity the company and "will continue" is not required because has shows that the action started somewhere in the past and is still continuing, it looks like we are telling the reader again and again (with the use of has and will that the action will continue)
B. they have and will continue to perpetuate Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey s shared artistic vision,
serious modifier error for "who" and same error as A

C. it has and will continue to perpetuate the shared artistic vision of Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey,
same error of will as A, moreover has continue is wrong should be "has continued"

D. it has perpetuated and will continue perpetuating the artistic vision that Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey shared,
modifier error for who, and will continue is the error

E. it has continued to perpetuate the shared artistic vision of Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey,
correct option, uses the correct form of continue and modifers are used correctly
