MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY
The Company has been at the forefront of creating interactive digital offerings that presenters may access for a variety of audiences — from Zoom dance classes and conversations with the artists, to curated programs about Graham’s legacy and social media challenges and lesson plans.
Senior members of the Company work with beginning, intermediate or advanced dance students in intensive sessions introducing them to the Martha Graham Technique and excerpts from the repertory.
Professional development workshops for teachers and programs that connect Graham’s themes to academic study are available. Study Guide material can be provided for participants.
This great community-connecter began several years ago and has been extremely popular. In the weeks before the Company’s performance, local dance students rehearse Graham’s dynamic early work, Panorama, which she created for 33 students in 1935. The local cast then performs Panorama as part of the company’s performance. This extended teaching residency builds interest throughout the community, always increases attendance and provides a memorable experience for the students and audience members alike.
PERFORMANCES FOR STUDENTS

This presentation includes information about Martha Graham, how emotion is conveyed through Graham’s body language, demonstrations of her revolutionary technique and excerpts from the company’s repertory.
