CityStep brings together teams of college students and city public school children in a transformative performing arts partnership.
Throughout the year, teams of college students travel to public schools to teach yearlong classes designed to build creative self-expression, collaboration and mutual understanding through dance
Each year culminates in an original production, created and performed by kids from across the city, about themes relevant to their lives.
CityStep has flourished at Harvard University for over 30 years! It now also thrives at Penn, Princeton and Yale, engaging communities in Philadelphia, Trenton and New Haven.
We’ve just launched the nonprofit CityStep.org to support the existing programs, codify their best practices, and create a replicable model, so we can bring CityStep to other communities nationwide. Learn more about our Initiatives.
