Tenth Annual Dance for World Community, Part 2

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in its original location since 1883, this tobacco and cigar shop has withstood the whims of time, while accruing the historical content of Harvard Square’s distinguished past.

Jose Mateo Ballet presents the 10th Annual Dance for World Community

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.

Mosquitos!!! Bzzzzzzing...stingggg.....SMACK!

Mosquito Bite and Population Control for Comfort and Health

Oh, how the warm spring weather lures us into the great outdoors! We are drawn to the woods, to the aromatic blooming [bzzzzsssning, smack! Sorry for the interruption] of the deep outdoors, or to the evening hanging out on a porch [bzzzzzing – smack! Sorry, again! For the interruption!] with friends. So warm…so peaceful! So greatly free of winter’s constrictions and burdens. So comforted by the long, long days. So…so…beset.

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.

Cambridge's Wild Side!

A Wildlife Exploration of the Alewife Brook Reservation.

Eastern Cottontail

Your safari begins just outside the Alewife T station, a stark concrete structure covered in graffiti, next to a noisy highway. You wouldn't believe that another world awaits you on the other side of the station. Bunnies play tag. Mommy duck takes care of her babies. A graceful swan dances a ballet. These are just a few of the 50 species you'll find at the wildlife sanctuary. This place is a photographer's dream. Each day there was something new and exciting to take a photo of.
