Indulge Yourself in a Paradise of World Culture @ Springstep

Springstep, conveniently located in nearby Medford, is a literal mecca of world music and dance! They offer everything from dance classes to concert series all under one roof. There’s always something happening at this bustling cultural center, and I highly encourage you to visit their website and have a look around. You’ll see what I mean. Springstep’s primary goal is to provide cultural programming representing all regions of the world to the local community that will ultimately aid in its social development. This is accomplished  through their concerted efforts at creating a climate of global awareness and appreciation amongst the local population while also providing them with a gathering place that offers a means of  group socialization via the various events and classes held there. 

First and foremost of such activities, are the large variety of ethnic dance classes held on a regular basis throughout the year, for both juveniles and adults. In some cases,  music education is also included as a part of the course curriculum.  Take a look here at the calendar of available sessions and the instructors who offer them. If I’ve peaked your interest enough at this point, you can register online right now! As a student, you can trust that you will be welcomed into a learning environment that is very laid back and informal- no partner necessary! There are even some fitness and wellness classes, such as yoga for example, incorporated into the mix. 

Complimenting this well-structured instruction program, is Springstep’s annual performance series featuring both music and dance from all areas of the globe. You can even take in an occasional art exhibit from time to time. But wait … there’s more folks! Springstep is very proud of their many partnerships with various other local cultural non-profits. Such collaborative efforts result in a whole roster of additional events which are held here on a regular basis including, workshops, social dances, special performances and other activities that add spice to an already extensive cultural program. As an example, I herewith refer you to a previous posting on a very special past Valentine’s Day evening event. Springtstep is also very proud of their partnerships with community organizations which allow them to keep attendance fees reasonable with respect to the general public and even more reasonable, and in some cases free, to low-income program participants who would not otherwise be able to enjoy the ethnic arts. 

I want to point out here that Springstep is a non-profit organization that depends quite a bit on generous donations in order to keep the fabulous programming alive, and there are a number of ways you can help. As a supporter or actual member, you can enjoy special benefits such as discounts and other goodies. You can also buy a gift certificate for the world culture enthusiast in your life or host your next event at their beautiful facility. Take a look! If you want to keep abreast of all the great happenings at Springstep, just sign-up for their monthly enewsletter, follow them on Facebook, of take a peek at the homepage on their website. So, hey world music fans! I’m certain that you want to stay connected to this very special cultural organization. They are, without a doubt, one of Boston’s premier sources of world music and dance entertainment.
