Teen Artists Program
The mission of the Teen Artists Program is to further teens’ development as individuals and as artists. The core of the program is the Creative Workshop, in which teens learn the craft of choreography, develop their individual artistic voices, and create their personal movement signature and vocabulary. Using the Graham Technique and Repertory as a foundation for study, the program serves as a platform for personal and creative exploration. Each semester teens will attend two special events and are introduced to significant artistic and intellectual movements. Teens will also be invited to attend the Martha Graham Dance Company open rehearsals and performances.

Participation is by audition or invitation only. Teen Artists will be eligible to audition for Teens@Graham Ensemble projects as well as participate in a year-end Teens@Graham Showcase.

 

Teen Training Program
The Teen Training Program reflects the Martha Graham School’s dedication to providing strong technical training for teens. Classes are offered in Graham Technique and Ballet with the objective of generated greater physical capacity, movement articulation, and strong technique. Teens will be invited to attend the Martha Graham Dance Company open rehearsals and performances.

Participation is by audition or invitation only. Teen Trainees will be eligible to audition for Teens@Graham Ensemble projects throughout the year.

One of Graham’s most psychological and abstract works, Dark Meadow is a dance of questioning. In her original program note, Graham wrote: “Dark Meadow is a re-enactment of the mysteries which attend the eternal adventure of seeking.” The characters of the dance include three lead dancers: She Who Seeks and He Who Summons, originally danced by Martha Graham and Erick Hawkins, and She of the Ground. The chorus of nine men and women is named They Who Dance Together. The atmospheric score was created for Graham by the Mexican composer Carlos Chávez.

In addition to the rehearsal showing, the evening will include archival footage from the 1940s of Graham and her dancers in Dark Meadow, as well as commentary from dancers who were directed by Graham herself in earlier productions of the work.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.

Composition – This exploration of dance-making guides students in creating movement phrases, discovering their own artistic voice, and developing a personal ‘toolbox’ of choreographic techniques.  

Ballet – Ballet training at the Martha Graham School focuses on the individual student’s abilities. The classes are structured to enhance and support the study of the Graham Technique.
