Graham Technique – The Martha Graham Technique™ is based on the core power of Graham’s signature contraction and release. The Technique promotes strength, stamina, and self-expression and serves as a foundation for excellence in many styles of dance. 

Graham Repertory – The study of Graham’s classic choreography offers students a deeper understanding of Graham’s expressive style as well as practice in valuable performance techniques.

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.
