The Dance Conservatory has been designed for beginning through advanced dancers to identify, nurture, develop, and train the Baltimore community’s children in the art of dance. The program offers students the opportunity to foster and enrich their dance education through the development of technical proficiency, artistic growth, and creativity.
Multiple disciplines are offered: Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Contemporary. Specialty classes, including Musical Theatre Dance, Acrobatics, and Hip Hop, allow dancers to further their skills for specific venues. Classes such as Yoga, Pilates, and Stretch/Conditioning are designed to help cross train dancers and athletes. Classes are held weekly, Monday through Friday afternoons, evenings, and Saturdays.
