Celebrating Martha Graham

Martha GrahamWhat do modern dance legends Alvin Ailey, Merce Cunningham, Jerome Robbins, Agnes de Mille, Erick Hawkins, Robert Joffrey, Pearl Lang and Donald McKayle have in common? They all created, performed and taught at the 92nd Street Y, and they all owe a great deal to Martha Graham.

Back in 1935, what is now the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center provided the first home to the fledgling modern dance movement and its leader, Martha Graham. On April 18, five generations of Graham performers who now teach—Pearl Lang, Linda Hodes, Peggy Lyman, Ken Topping and Marianne Bachman Dello Joio—will return to the original Y studio where Graham taught to give a master class in honor of the Martha Graham Dance Company’s 80th Anniversary.

And on April 21, the Martha Graham Dance Company is presenting a free Fridays at Noon performance charting the collaboration of Graham, composer Aaron Copland and sculptor Isamu Noguchi that resulted in the masterwork Appalachian Spring (1944). Call 212.415.5553 to make reservations.
