Community Dance Day
Saturday, August 13, 2022
10 am–4 pm
19 Clarendon Street, Boston, MA 02116


Celebrate dance and learn from artists in our city during a day of creative and interactive events, hosted at our Boston studios in the South End.

The event will also feature a screening of our brand-new Citydance documentary created in partnership with NBC/Universal. Narrated by JC Monahan, the film celebrates 30 years of this one-of-a-kind program that annually provides up to 3,000 third grade students from more than 130 Boston Public School classrooms with a tuition-free introduction to dance and ballet. Be the first to see this documentary before it's released to the public!

RSVP
Dance lovers of all ages, levels, and disciplines are welcome.
Visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
