PRE-TEEN SUMMER INTENSIVE – Returning Summer 2022!

Ages 10 – 12

The PreTeen Summer Intensive focuses on adolescent dancer development. Dancers will continue and diversify their dance education with a program dedicated to ballet, Graham Technique, and creative movement.


Graham Technique
The Martha Graham Technique is based on the core power of Graham’s signature contraction and release. The Technique promotes strength, stamina, and self-expression and serves as a foundation for excellence in many styles of dance.

Ballet training at the Graham School is adapted for individual student abilities. Classes are structured to enhance and support the study of the Martha Graham Technique.

Creative Workshop
This exploration of dance-making guides students in creating movement phrases, discovering their own artistic voice, and developing a personal toolbox of choreographic techniques using elements of Graham repertory as a source of inspiration.
