This fall (October) we are moving to a beautiful, modern studio within walking distance of our current location. This amazing studio will house dance floors that meet the industry's highest standards. These floors will be a pleasure for our dancers, and will help prevent injuries. We are very excited about this great new facility as it will be the best the state can offer! We are looking forward to moving to this new location in October.
Our first open house at our current studio is Saturday, August 19th. Classes begin for the 2017-18 year on Tuesday, September 5th. Be sure to enroll your dancer today.
Training children of all ages to be successful in the world of performing arts and beyond!
Dance is a poem of which each movement is a word
Maryland Performing Arts Center (MPAC) is a studio that takes pride in its dedication to its students. Our performing arts center in Severna Park, MD, educates girls and boys of all ages in the genres of dance, conditioning, acrobatics, musical theater, and vocal training. We’re the only facility of our kind in the county that offers a well-rounded and respected musical theater program.
The students at our dance studio thrive under the guidance of Artistic Director Kelsey King and her staff, who have developed individual relationships with each child. We’re a family-owned studio preparing our students for future success by exposing them to an array of resume-building opportunities and experiences. These have helped our graduates gain acceptance into the college of their choice and build skills that they use in their professional lives.
A Community Space for Everyone’s Benefit
We’re glad to say that we actively give back to the community. Our dance studio participates in statewide events that generate proceeds for charitable organizations, worthy causes, and individuals in need. Above all, we value teamwork, inclusiveness, and achievement.
You’re welcome to visit our state-of-the-art center on any weekday or on Saturday. We have a video system recording in every room so that parents can watch their child in class from a monitor in the front lobby. Get in touch with us to schedule a consultation and register your child or yourself for our special conditioning for dancers.
Teaching a Diverse Spectrum of Dancing Genres
Each of our instructors has earned or is currently earning teaching degrees, and together they teach a variety of subjects. This is one of the many advantages that set us apart from any other studio in the region. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced dance classes in ballet, pointe, contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip hop, and more. We also offer acrobatics courses and unique apprenticeship classes for students who have recently chosen to begin dancing.
These fast-paced classes prepare dancers to quickly advance and join students their age in our regular program and dance company. Here at MPAC, we do everything in our power to help all of our dancers succeed.
Musical Theater Production
We offer multi-faceted classes that comprise our exceptional musical theater program. This is for ages 5 all the way to adults, and includes vocal training and acting classes. It focuses on strengthening the students’ singing, dancing, and acting techniques, and implements exercises in order to ensure their growth within a fun environment.
In addition, students will enhance the quality of their performances by studying the elements of how a musical is created, showcase their skills by presenting plays, and learn how to audition for productions. We ensure that our students can.
