Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. Most of our classes are geared toward teens and adults, though several kids' classes will also be available during this event. Please check the class options for full descriptions, and consult our website ( for even more kids' options!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Dance Complex is accessible through public transportation to Central Square, Cambridge. We are 1.5 blocks from the nearest T stop, and several buses also serve this stop.

If you're driving, please allot extra time to park! Central Square is undergoing lots of construction, which has limited some parking in the areas surrounding our building. Cambridge offers FREE street parking on Sundays only. It is also possible to park in permit-only areas on Sundays.

What should I wear to the classes?

Please read the class descriptions (under the registration/ticket options) to see details regarding your specific class or classes. In general, wear comfortable, loose clothing that you can move in. No street shoes are ever allowed in our studios. If you don't have the right footwear for your desired class (such as tap shoes or hip-hop sneakers), that's OK! Our website also has more information regarding proper attire:

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can email, or call 617-547-9363. Please note that this email will be checked twice weekly ONLY, so please allow 3-5 business days for a response. If you have a more urgent question, you may call the main line (above) or consult our website for the contact info of each Teaching Artist.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, but please be ready to check in and show proof of your registration (i.e. on your phone)!

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No. If you cannot attend and are able to cancel your registration before the event, you may do so through this site.
