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.

Leavitt & Peirce

If These Walls Could Talk

Leavitt & Peirce may just be the oldest small business in Cambridge. Located in its original location since 1883, this tobacco and cigar shop has withstood the whims of time, while accruing the historical content of Harvard Square’s distinguished past.

When a Bird Flies into (Enters) Your House

How to Get Them Out (Instructions that Work)

Photo of small bird in flight.

This can happen anywhere there are houses and birds. This story is about what to do when a bird flies into your house or apartment in Cambridge. Which can happen to anyone. Here, in Cambridge, measuring just about seven square miles, with so much wildlife, so many birds, especially at this time of year. There are also so many bird nests (where many birds live), you probably live within fifteen feet of a bird nest nestled into some eaves or foyer and you don’t even know it.

Safe Haven for Newborn Babies

And an Easing of Suffering for the Parent

It is impossible to predict how someone will respond to having a baby. There can be the best of intentions and expectations: joy, bonding, sharing the moment, and thinking about the future. There can be the best preparation: the stack of wee onesies and diapers, perhaps a rocking chair, a baby shower, childbirth classes, and prenatal appointments. Your baby’s name has probably been chosen. Everything is all set, awaiting the welcoming of your newborn baby girl or boy.

This Is Who It Hurts-Part 2

The Loss of EMF – a rehearsal complex for artists and musicians

The loss of the EMF rehearsal complex on Brookline Street is to many, the last nail in the coffin of an autonomous arts community. Of course it is not completely dead, but it’s gasping for air, and for many, the hurt and the disappointment are extreme. This disenfranchised community feels abandoned by a city they love and at war with the “pillars of society” who preach “Refugees Welcome Here” but practice “only if you can afford it,” which you can’t.
