Graham Technique – The Martha Graham Technique amplifies the natural movement associated with the breath through Graham’s signature contraction and release. It promotes strength and risk taking, and serves as a foundation for excellence. Four levels are offered.

Graham Repertory – Participants study Graham’s masterworks, inspired by a wide variety of sources, including modern painting, the American frontier, spiritual ceremonies, and Greek mythology.

Composition – Participants explore the process of dance making and construct their own choreographic phrases. Students will be encouraged to develop a choreography “toolbox” and find their own artistic voice.

Gyrokinesis – Gyrokinesis is a conditioning and injury prevention technique that stretches and strengthens the body through principles of alignment, concentric and eccentric forces, and breathing patterns.

Ballet – The Martha Graham School approaches ballet training in a nurturing way, focusing on the individual student’s abilities. The classes are structured to enhance and support the study of the Martha Graham Technique.

Students may choose which weeks and how many to attend!

– Westbeth (55 Bethune Street, 11th and 3rd Floors, NYC, 10014)

Graham Technique – The Martha Graham Technique amplifies the natural movement associated with the breath through Graham’s signature contraction and release. It promotes strength and risk taking, and serves as a foundation for excellence. Four levels are offered.

Graham Repertory – Participants study Graham’s masterworks, inspired by a wide variety of sources, including modern painting, the American frontier, spiritual ceremonies, and Greek mythology.

Youth ChoreoLab – Students learn the craft of choreography through studies of body shapes, images, relationships, and other choreographic concepts and ideas.

Gyro/Pilates – Pilates and the Gyrokinesis are each complete systems of mind-body movement. Pilates is more linear and focuses on core strength, pelvic stability, building long muscles that are flexible as well as toned, and proper body mechanics and alignment. The Gyrokinesis method is three-dimensional and circular. It too strengthens the body’s core muscles from the inside out.
