Who is Virginie Mécène?

She is currently the Program Director for the Two-Year Certificate Program and for the Teacher Training Program at the Martha Graham School. She has also been the Artistic Director of Graham 2 since 2007.

Virginie Mécène has taught master classes, workshops, and held conferences nationally and internationally and teaches technique, repertory, and pedagogy. She has trained many dancers of the Martha Graham Dance Company as well as many Graham teachers who are currently teaching all over the world.
