The Dance Complex

The Dance Complex is a 25+ year old central hub of dance- locally, with connections to the New England region and in dialogue with the inter/national dance field. Our building, an 1884-circa Odd Fellow’s Hall in the heart of Central Square, Cambridge, is a home to a diverse range of movers and dancers. This unique arts center hosts professional, pre-professional, and recreational movers. All are able to find a variety of movement and dance classes to take their next step. All can access affordable studio space, and participate in programs to help strengthen their choreographic, performance, and production skills. Those who dance, teach and create within our studios receive valued space in a supportive environment for affordable rental rates.

We invite the community to join us for over 100 concerts a year in our theatre and studios, and to celebrate with us in seasonal festivals that bring study, creation and performance together. Local artists perform alongside national guest artists in two theatre spaces.

Newer programs include All In Movement Programming which AIMS to remove barriers to dance in the widest possible terms, with classes and workshops within multiple communities including those with movement/mobility challenges, LGTBQ and allies and those fiscally challenged.
