The Marjorie Mazia School of Dance, located at 1618 Sheepsead Bay Road, Brooklyn, NY, was open to children dancing at all levels for over 25 years.
When Marjorie left the Graham Dance Company, she took her love of dance and natural ability to teach, and applied it to children. Marjorie was the first person, outside of Martha Graham to be allowed to teach the codified Graham technique.
Marjorie taught her students to how to dance, understand their bodies, and through their belief in themselves, how to be the best person they could be.
Every once in awhile would bring in surprise teachers from the Graham Dance company. Guest artists included Donnie McKayle, Merce Cunningham, Pearl Lang, and Sophie Maslow.
