Hidden Talent

Premier dance, theater, and music for free



etter known in Manhattan than among the people who live and visit Martha’s Vineyard, as the Village Voice put it, the Yard is what the New York weekly calls the country’s premier residential colony devoted to the development of new dance, hosting visiting choreographers and some of the nation’s best dancers on a far-flung estate with a 100-seat theater and a studio. You can get in on the secret by attending the Yard’s public performances, many of them free, and a summer-long dance, theater, music, and opera festival. Find the schedule here.



One of the best secrets of the Yard is its morning yoga classes for resident artists and dancers, which are also open to the public at a surprisingly low price, and taught in an open-air studio surrounded by peaceful woods and flowers. Find more information here.
