Brooklyn College & Martha Graham Company offer Modern Dance Classes for Students

The School of Visual, Media and Performing Arts at Brooklyn College is partnering with the Martha Graham Dance Company to offer two unique and intensive classes at the Brooklyn College campus in Flatbush, New York, January 9-26, 2012.
The two classes, ‘Technique’ and ‘Composition,’ will give undergraduate students of Brooklyn College and other institutions an opportunity to immerse themselves in the dance technique of the legendary Martha Graham. Each of the classes will accrue three credits. Faculty from the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance will work alongside guest artists to introduce students to the basics of the Graham technique and how to construct a dance.
The technique class runs Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m.-noon. The composition class runs Mondays through Fridays, 2 pm-5 pm. These two winter intensives are specifically designed for students who wish to progress rapidly in the Graham technique. Classes may be taken concurrently or separately. Registration is open to undergraduate students from Brooklyn College and other colleges and universities.
The Martha Graham Dance Company, which will be practicing for its next tour at Brooklyn College’s Walt Whitman Auditorium during the week of January 23, has agreed to open its rehearsals to students every day that week. The general public will also have an opportunity to attend rehearsals on Tuesday, January 24, from 2 pm to 3:30 pm and on Wednesday, January 25, from 10:30 am- noon.
