Celebrate the diverse dance traditions in Cambridge.

There is a long tradition of a family dance in Cambridge. You will learn about the ancient history of dance when you study with Boston Lykeion Ellinidon, a greek dance group. Circle dances are the world's oldest form of dance.

Samba Viva brings the party spirit straight from Brazil, featuring traditional folk and carnival dances.

For many dancers, being part of Jose Mateo's Dance company is the start of their dance journey. Here, Jose's young dancers display beautiful poses.

No matter the style, at the end of the day, everyone enjoys a dance party.
