Community cyphers at Harvard Dance Center are open to anyone wanting to feel the beat and groove in a joyful community environment. They are held in the Dance Center's spacious Studio 1 and are sometimes accompanied by live music. These are informal jams - no dance training needed! 

What is a cypher?
A cypher is freestyle dance jam where an open circle is created and people take turns dancing in the center. The cypher (or cipher) has deep, long-standing cultural roots in hip hop culture, African tradition, and even religious beliefs. 

Cypher leader Aysha Upchurch AIE'15 will guide you through the experience...the important thing is to let go and have fun!
