The mission of the Young Artists Program is to further teens’ development both as individuals and as artists using the Graham Technique and Repertory as a foundation for study. Dance serves as a platform for personal and creative exploration and interdisciplinary collaborations.
Teens are essential members of the Martha Graham School, which strives to provide them opportunities to expand their understanding of dance and all the arts. Each semester teens will attend two special events through which they are introduced to significant artistic and intellectual movements. These may include field trips to museums and other organizations, guest lectures and film screenings, to name a few. Teens will also be invited to attend the Martha Graham Dance Company open rehearsals and performances.
Participation in this program is by audition or invitation only. Students will receive registration form and information packet once accepted into the program.

Ballet: The study of Ballet provides a foundation that can support many dance forms. At the Martha Graham School we approach our ballet classes in a nurturing way, focusing on the individual students’ abilities. An emphasis is put on, but not limited to, body awareness, body placement, coordination, musicality, and flexibility. The classes are structured to enhance and support the study of the Graham Technique.
Our School Partnerships offer middle schools and high schools in New York City the opportunity to enhance their modern dance curriculum with the Martha Graham Technique, and integrate Graham into their curriculum in compliance with the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts and the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning the Arts. The Martha Graham School has served as a professional development facilitator (Grade 12) for the Blueprint, which is used by schools throughout New York State.
