Graham 2 is a pre-professional dance company drawn from the most advanced students of the Martha Graham School.
Its mission is to bring the Graham tradition to a younger audience, smaller venues, and to cultural communities, and to be a spring board for young dancers to enter professional dance world.
Dancers are selected from among the hundreds of students from around the world who study at the Martha Graham School. While in Graham 2, dancers are supported by a scholarship, receive stipends for performances and may be given the opportunity to perform with the Martha Graham Dance Company. Seventy percent of the current Company began as members of Graham 2.
