Young Artists Program 2018-01-24T16:10:26+00:00

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. The mission of the conservatory-based Young Artists Program is to further teens’ development using the Graham Technique and Repertory as a foundation for study.

The Young Artists Program is led by former Martha Graham Company principal dancer, Tadej Brdnik. Participation is by audition or invitation only.

Students may audition for one of the following Divisions:

TEEN ARTISTS DIVISION

The mission of the Teen Artists Division is to further teens’ development as individuals and as artists. The core of the Program is the Creative Workshop, in which teens learn the craft of choreography, develop their individual artistic voices, and create their personal movement signature and vocabulary. Using the Graham Technique and Repertory as a foundation for study, the programs serves as a platform for personal and creative exploration. Each semester teens will attend two special events and are introduced to significant and artistic and intellectual movements. Teens will also be invited to attend the Martha Graham Dance Company open rehearsals and performances.

Participation is by audition or invitation only. Teen Artists will be eligible to audition for Teens@Graham Special Projects as well as participate in a year-end Teens@Graham Showcase.

TEEN TRAINING DIVISION

The Teen Training Division reflects the Martha Graham School’s dedication to providing strong technical training for teens. Classes are offered in Graham Technique, Contemporary, and Ballet with the objective of generating greater physical capacity, movement articulation, and strong technique. Teens will be invited to attend the Martha Graham Dance Company open rehearsals and performances.

Participation is by audition or invitation only. Teens will be eligible to audition for Teens@Graham Special Projects throughout the year.
