Our Mission

Maryland Performing Arts Center is a studio that takes pride in its dedication to its students. Located in the heart of Severna Park, MPAC educates girls and boys of all ages in the genres of dance, conditioning, acrobatics, and vocal training. It is also the only facility of its kind in the county that offers a well-rounded and respected musical theatre program.

The students at MPAC thrive under the guidance of Artistic Director Kelsey King and her staff, who have developed individual relationships with each child. MPAC is a family-owned studio that prepares its students for future success by exposing them to an array of opportunities and experiences. These resume-building experiences have helped MPAC’s graduates to gain acceptance into the college of their choice and skills that they carry forward in their professional lives.

In addition, MPAC actively gives back to the community. The studio participates in state-wide events that generate proceeds for various organizations, causes, and individuals. Above all, the company values teamwork, inclusiveness, and achievement.

We welcome you to visit our State of the Art center on any weekday or Saturday. We have a video system in every room for recording so that parents can watch their child in class from a monitor in the front lobby. Contact us now at 410-421-8960 to schedule a consultation and register today!

A Spectrum of Genres

Each of the instructors at MPAC have earned their degrees to teach, or are in the process or receiving their degrees. This is one of the many advantages that sets us apart from any other dance studio in the region. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced dance classes in ballet, pointe, contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip-hop, bollywood, and more. We also offer unique apprenticeship classes for students who have newly chosen to begin dancing. These fast-paced classes prepare dancers to quickly advance and join students their age in our regular program and our dance company. Here at MPAC, we do everything in our power to make sure that all of our dancers succeed.
