What is the Fagan Technique?

The Fagan technique is the teaching method that Garth Fagan, company founder and artistic director, developed hand-in-hand with his own choreography when he started his ensemble in 1970. The technique is a singular dance language drawing from the sense of weight in modern dance, the torso-centered movement and energy of Afro-Caribbean, the speed and precision of ballet, and the rule breaking experimentation of the post moderns.

The technique is dynamic and powerful and prepares the body for the wide range of movement found in 
Garth Fagan’s choreography. Fagan Technique has long been recognized for its ability to increase the 
performing careers of dancers, a direct result of its emphasis on coordination, flexibility, seamless transitions, strength and musicality.
