The Contraction Programme

The Graham Technique is an incredible art form based on the interrelationship between contraction, release and spiral, facilitating a breathing cycle that serves as the trademark of modern dance. Learning this technique will increase the emotional activity of your body and make you much more aware of how to breathe efficiently as you move through fundamental dance concepts. We will use well-known exercises that target the torso and arms, starting on the floor before standing and eventually moving across the floor. These exercises include: Bounces, Breathings, 3's and 6's, Long Leans, Deep Stretches, Turns Around the Back, Plies, The Nines and more.

We will go through these movements in a way that works best for you. Students love the power and focus they receive from learning this fantastic technique. You are encouraged to take risks, to express yourself, as volume and energy are crucial to the Graham Technique. These exercises are a great challenge and help students become more elegant dancers by demonstrating how the pelvis and spine operate together in twisting and curving the torso.

The Contraction Programme is for dancers who want to improve, excel, and become the best dancer they can be. Also, for dancers in need of coaching for performances, competitions, college audition preparation, summer program video submissions, pre-professional programmes, and choreography.

These are Online or In-person private dance lessons. An additional fee applies for In-person sessions.

My lovely experience with M-Intensive

I have had the best experience with the M-Intensive Team, and I couldn't be more grateful for all the dedication Mr Patrice has put in each and every lesson we had together. I found so much about new ways of using my body throughout the Graham and Horton Techniques. The M-Intensive Online Dance Platform is filled with hundreds of tutorials and videos that are extremely useful when learning a new technique. I truly recommend M-Intensive to absolutely anyone who is eager to discover more about The Graham and Horton Techniques.
Thank you again for everything!!!!

I Learned so much in just six lessons

Taking Horton with M-Intensive helped me massively when applying to the Juilliard summer programme. I was looking for more classes to take in Horton, and when the opportunity came to participate in the 6-week training programme with M-intensive, I was elated. It couldn’t have come at a better time, and I learned so much in the six weeks, which prepared me for what was to come ahead in the Juilliard summer programme. The intense six-week training period taught me everything I had to know prior to the summer programme, and I was so grateful to be able to have that extra training. I would totally take M-intensive again as I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the programme and learned so much in just six lessons.
