Founded in 1926 by legendary modern dance pioneer, the Martha Graham Dance Company revolutionized American dance and became “one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe” (Washington Post). A trailblazing genius, Graham captured the contemporary spirit of her time and created groundbreaking works that continue to inspire and captivate audiences.

Today, this extraordinary company of 16 gorgeous dancers masterfully honors Graham’s legacy with a dramatic and exciting evening of Graham classics, rare films and newly commissioned works. The program is highlighted by the New Orleans debut of Graham’s iconic masterpiece Appalachian Spring (1944), set to the famous Aaron Copeland score, and a special performance of Panorama (1935), danced by New Orleans youth in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the NORDC/NOBA Center For Dance.

“The most significant theatre of our time…as near to being an ideal dance company as we have any hope of seeing.” —The New York Times
