Celebrate the diversity of Cambridge through dance. Follow me as I explore what it means to be a part of a dance community.

Dance'n Feet

I am a lifelong dancer and resident of Cambridge for 17 years. I have been lucky to be a part of some amazing dance communities. For me, the word community means family. The best dance teachers create a family of dancers. Most dancers will spend months of hard work and sweat on a routine. What we get out of it is friendship, and the excitement to perform for the festival. Some of the surprises of the day were a group of senior dance acrobats from the group Dance'n Feet. Another surprise was a little girl learning flamenco for the first time from LS Flamenco. Here are some of my favorite photos from the dance community.
