Martha Graham Company – Putting A Life Back Together

The 26 dancers of the Martha Graham Company are back, finishing a week in New York. They “expect to go on tour soon, to engagements that are being negotiated and should be announced in coming weeks. With a current annual budget projected at $7 million, the company is seeking at least $3 million in outside funding. Next week, the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance is moving from various Manhattan locations to a building on East 63rd Street where Graham had taught for many years. The property was sold during the company’s financial crunch of the 1990s, and repurchased recently.”
