Martha Graham Dancer Relief Fund

*** UPDATED CLASS SCHEDULE BELOW***


As a family of artists from around the world, the Dancers of the Martha Graham Dance Company are deeply saddened by the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. Our tours and beloved New York City Season have been canceled/postponed with many challenges and uncertainties ahead, leaving us without the steady income we heavily rely on to survive. In order to continue our dedication to the arts and its vibrant community, we humbly ask for your aid during these turbulent times. Thank you for taking the time to donate to our Dancer Relief Fund. No contribution is too big or too small. We greatly appreciate your generosity and continued support and look forward to dancing for you again soon!

Sincerely,
The Dancers of Martha Graham

What is Martha Graham Technique?
In developing her technique, Martha Graham experimented endlessly with basic human movement, beginning with the most elemental movements of contraction and release. Using these principles as the foundation for her technique, she built a vocabulary of movement that would “increase the emotional activity of the dancer’s body” 

Moving into the future, how can you help?
With the current pandemic we all face, dancers of the Martha Graham Dance Company are unable to secure steady work moving forward.

We set a goal at $20,000 hoping that the community will recognize the importance of this beautiful form of art and participate in our daily classes on Instagram with our company dancers. We appreciate any and all donations given.
