Martha Graham (May 11, 1894 – April 1, 1991) was an American modern dancer and choreographer whose influence on dance has been compared with the influence Picasso had on modern visual arts, Stravinsky had on music, or Frank Lloyd Wright had on architecture. She danced and choreographed for over seventy years. Photo was taken by Imogen Cunningham in 1931.

Martha Graham, Lamantation, 1930. De manier van dansen die Graham ontwikkelde, staat bekend als Grahamdans. Naast het klassiek ballet is dit het enige uitgewerkte systeem voor beroepsdansers. In deze dans is het middenrif het startpunt voor iedere beweging: spanning en ontspanning door in- en uitademen. Andere kenmerken zijn het vallen, de spiraal (het na elkaar ronddraaien van bekken, middel, schouders en hoofd) kruipen, vallen, rollen en zwiepende bewegingen.

Martha Graham: "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. . ."
