Dear CityStep,

Thank you for a great year. You and the other teachers showed me how to do things I never knew I could do. And when I thought I couldn't do it you gave me the encouragement I needed to continue.

Why should you get involved in CityStep?

CityStep has grown from a small public service student organization in Cambridge to a multi-city elementary-level dance education program and one of Penn’s fastest growing student groups, but only with the support of generous donors and devoted volunteers. In fact, since its inception at Penn in 2004, CityStep has grown into a 30-plus member teacher company engaging over 100 West Philadelphia middle school students resulting in sold-out shows and amazing relationships. Building upon this success, CityStep has big plans for the future and we would love you to help us realize our goals. Get in touch and become a friend of CityStep!

How can you get involved?

Your time, energy and ideas are the most valuable resources. If you’re interested in sharing your expertise or enthusiasm with CityStep, there are multiple venues for doing so, from attending our annual CityStep Battle of the Dance Fundraiser or CityStep Show, to getting involved directly with our students.

If you’re a Penn undergraduate, you can contact CityStep’s leadership on campus to learn about becoming a producer, teacher or composer. Producers run the business side of CityStep, managing and planning almost every detail of CityStep’s major events. Teachers, in teams of 5 or 6, work with their students for the entire year.

If you are knowledgeable about different types of dance and would like to be a guest workshop presenter for a CityStep class, we welcome your talent and energy into the classroom! If you have a mind for business, fundraising campaign expertise, or great with graphic design, CityStep has could use your help. Please fill out the form above and let us know how you’d like to contribute to CityStep.

Also essential to making CityStep’s program possible are donations and grants from concerned friends, parents, students, arts activists and corporations. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to CityStep. It will directly benefit CityStep’s students, financing the biggest, best, and longest-lasting dance party to ever hit West Philadelphia Public Schools!
