Martha Graham's 100 Celebration with Ballet Spartanburg

Ballet Spartanburg announces an extraordinary partnership with the world-renowned Martha Graham Dance Company as part of its 2023/2024 season. Ballet Spartanburg will be one of the 100 partnerships for the 100th Anniversary of the Martha Graham Dance Company. We will present Martha Graham’s Suite from Appalachian Spring, from Appalachian Spring, music by Aaron Copland, March 2024. This is a tremendous opportunity for our Professional Ballet Company to dance this famous repertoire choreographed by the legendary Martha Graham.
This historic ballet amplifies our season and allows our community, and beyond, the opportunity to learn about Martha Graham, how she created the piece, her vision of this unique story of a young couple traveling to settle the wild frontier, to experience her prolific storytelling through her quintessential dance technique and hear the Pulitzer Prize winning composition by Aaron Copland which was written for this ballet upon Graham’s request. To bring this piece to Spartanburg and to South Carolina for the first time is truly a dream come true. We anticipate sold-out performances. One of our school shows is already sold out.
We are one of the 100 partners that the Martha Graham Dance Company will partner with over the next three years to celebrate its exemplary history. As a partner, we are committed to working closely with the Martha Graham Dance Company to reflect the brilliance in choreography and movement that Martha Graham created for this ballet. It is an honor and a privilege to celebrate 100 years of contemporary dance by the legendary Martha Graham.
Cheers to the Martha Graham Dance Company to another 100 years of dance!
Join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity as we present, Suite from Appalachian Spring, from Appalachian Spring.
