Our Mission

Maryland Performing Arts Center is a place 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, and it is 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 colleges of their choices 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!
