It’s time for dance in the Art City August schedule, after the new arts organization put the focus on music in the first weekend and film last weekend.
The image of serene, balletic dance gets a dramatic remix in “I Am Here Now,” which uses video projections and laser writing to show our fractured, distracted lives.
Young performers take to the stage in synchronized struts, controlled slides and dizzying, gravity-defying flips Thursday at the 18th annual Agassiz Baldwin Hip-Hop Festival.

In many communities, going to a high school arts production means hours of cringing through an awkward obligation. In Cambridge, the Dance/Works show is rightfully a hot ticket.

As a volunteer-based, artist-run nonprofit organization, The Dance Complex is nothing if not democratic, and it proves it three times a year with its Shared Choreographers’ Concerts. The latest is in Central Square this weekend.
