We offer weekly arts education classes for youth (5th-7th grade) that include dancing, acting, and other movement-based arts.

This program runs during the school year.

Our program runs Early October - Late April. We are still finalizing our afterschool hours, exact hours to be determined/coordinated with schools on select weekdays.

Ages: 9 to 13.

Grades 4th grade through 7th grade.

Eligibility varies by school and is based on grade level (overall, for 4th-7th graders).

Registration required

  • Sign-up is ongoing

CityStep Fall 2023 Student Interest Form.

Parents should fill out our interest form or reach out to one of the contacts above so that we can walk you through the process for registration. Registration is ongoing, the interest form is available now. However, we generally have a finalized roster by late September before classes begin.



The program serves people at their homes or wherever it is needed or online.

  • In-person only.

  • Transportation from school provided for some eligible students; check with your child's school.

We are still determining the exact locations where the program will take place, but it will happen at select Cambridge Public School buildings. Again, we are still working with schools to settle on locations so we will follow up once those are finalized. If the classes take place in a space other than the student's school, we are planning on arranging for buses.

Additional information


CityStep Harvard brings arts enrichment to Cambridge Public Schools through dance! Teams of college-student facilitators meet weekly with fifth through seventh graders to lead fun games, teach moves, and create dances. Through dance, we aim to cultivate each individual’s self-confidence and creativity while also having fun! The year culminates in an original performance about a theme relevant to the students’ lives and which they help create.

Our program includes dance, acting, improv, and movement activities.
