The Martha Graham School’s leading educational outreach program, Teens@Graham, offers aspiring dancers ages 10-18 the opportunity to improve vocational skills and academic performance through study of the Graham Technique, composition, and repertory.

The School’s emphasis on teens directly stems from Martha Graham’s philosophical approach to her artistry. The emotional self and psychological inner landscape resonate with teens as they transition from child- to adulthood. Independence, empowerment, and expression are central themes across Teens@Graham programming.
