Martha Graham presented her first performance with a supporting group of dancers on April 18, 1926.

Since that date, considered to be the launch of the Martha Graham Dance Company, Graham’s groundbreaking and uniquely American style of dance has influenced generations of artists and continues to captivate audiences worldwide.


The 2024 season, American Legacies, highlights Graham’s social activism, Americana and modernism, with classic works including Appalachian Spring (1944), Dark Meadow (1946) and Maple Leaf Rag (1990), a new production of Agnes de Mille’s Rodeo (1942) with score by Aaron Copland reorchestrated for a six-piece bluegrass ensemble by composer Gabe Witcher; and a new work by Jamar Roberts with a score by Rhiannon Giddens, presented as part of the Company’s 2024 season at New York City Center (April 17-24) and on tour.
