The most celebrated modern dance company in America makes an eagerly anticipated visit to Athens at last! The Martha Graham Dance Company exemplifies its founder’s timeless and uniquely American style of dance — one that has influenced generations of artists and continues to captivate audiences worldwide. The ensemble will perform Appalachian Spring — Graham’s legendary signature piece set to Aaron Copland’s iconic music.
Due to a change in the Martha Graham Dance Company’s schedule while in Athens, the Performance for Young People on Friday, Feb. 3, will no longer take place. The school show on Thursday, Feb. 2, will happen as planned.
Performances of Young People
Performances for Young People is a program designed to expose K-12 students to the performing arts at a young age by facilitating in-person, culturally diverse experiences for them. The program’s purpose is to inspire the next generation of artists and arts supporters. The costs of these performances are generously subsidized by friends of the Performing Arts Center who share that vision. Parents, guardians, and teachers are encouraged to exercise their personal judgement when determining if programs are appropriate for their children and students. Admission to Performances for Young People is $2 for students and $4 for adults. Students must be at least six years old to attend. Large school groups should use the order form for reservations (forthcoming). Home school groups should contact the box office at (706) 542-4400 or in person Monday-Friday, 10:00 am-5:00 pm.
