Eryc Taylor Dance was founded in 2006 with a mission to advance appreciation of dance by creating and presenting original performances, conducting master classes and workshops, and awarding grants to aspiring choreographers. ETD's choreography seeks to find, explore and execute new points of view and combine varied styles of dance on and off pointe. ETD collaborates with digital artists and contemporary composers to fuse current technology with the classical compositions of music and dance, specializing in mapping and light projections to create ethereal extensions of the dancers and stimulate the visual senses. The Company has been home to over twenty New York City dancers since its founding. Every year, ETD provides three emerging New York-based choreographers with $1000 grants to fund the creation of a new piece and subsequently produces and hosts a work-in-progress show featuring each of the new works.
The Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance continues in its founder’s spirit of innovation by offering world-class training in Martha Graham Technique and repertory as a foundation for excellence and engagement in the evolving art form of modern dance. Through offerings in complementary traditions, the School provides experiences that expand students’ horizons and prepares today’s dancers for the variety of opportunities they may pursue. Its studio and outreach programs promote physical strength, artistic expression, and intellectual exploration.
