DANCER LED CLASSES
As a family of artists from around the world, the Martha Graham Dance Company dancers are saddened by the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. We are deeply concerned for our neighbors who face serious health challenges, even as we work through our own disruptions. Our tours and beloved New York City Season have been postponed/canceled and many challenges lie ahead, leaving us without the income we rely on to survive. We remain dedicated to the arts and its vibrant community, and humbly ask for your aid during these turbulent times. Thank you for considering a donation to our Dancer Relief Fund. No contribution is too big or small. We greatly appreciate your generosity and continued support, and look forward to dancing for you again soon!!

The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a world leader in the evolving art form of modern dance since its founding in 1926.
The Company embraces a new vision that showcases masterpieces by Graham alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists. With programs that offer a rich thematic narrative, the Company creates new platforms for contemporary dance and multiple points of access for audiences.
Since its inception, the Martha Graham Dance Company has received international acclaim from audiences in more than 50 countries throughout North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Russia, and the Middle East.
The Martha Graham School is the oldest professional school of dance in the United States and the only one primarily focused on the Martha Graham Technique and repertory. Classes are taught by faculty who are current or former members of the Martha Graham Dance Company, and who trained with Martha Graham herself or with her first-generation acolytes.
Full-time programs are offered for intermediate and advanced pre-professional students seeking excellent training in the Martha Graham Technique and repertory along with theory, pedagogy and related disciplines.
The Martha Graham School offers Intensive Programs for adults and teens, specifically designed for students and professionals who are unable to attend the Martha Graham School year-round or who wish to progress rapidly in the Martha Graham Technique.
The Martha Graham School’s leading educational outreach program, Teens@Graham, offers aspiring dancers ages 13-18 the opportunity to improve vocational skills and academic performance through study of the Graham Technique, composition, and repertory.
Graham 2 is a pre-professional dance company drawn from the most advanced students of the Martha Graham School. Its mission is threefold: to bring fresh energy, passion, and vision to the brilliant tradition of Martha Graham; to bring the Graham tradition to a younger audience, smaller venues, and to cultural communities; and to be a springboard for young dancers to enter the professional dance world.
