The Living Legacy of Martha Graham: The Technique

Martha Graham has been called the "mother of modern dance". Her technique has been taught at Juilliard since she joined the Dance Division faculty in 1951, and her works continue to be performed at the school. Today, Juilliard dancers go through two years of Graham technique class, led by Terese Capucilli. Rooted in Graham's belief in the direct link between physical and emotional states, the class encourages the students to embark on a journey of self-discovery as artists.
