Modern classes introduce the concepts of movement used in Martha Graham Technique. Strength is fostered through floor-work exercises designed to teach the initiation of movement from the back and lower spine. Flexibility is increased through a variety of stretching components within the exercises. The forms and patterns learned in floor work are applied to center work and to combinations across the floor. Movement and principles learned in level C (beginning) are furthered explored in B (intermediate) and A (advanced) classes. Accuracy and dexterity are emphasized. The complexity of movement increases as students become familiar with the Graham vocabulary.
