The Dance Conservatory at The St. Paul's Schools 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. The process of learning to dance also teaches discipline and self-awareness, defines limitations, and enhances musical aptitude, concentration, and focus. Throughout the year we will witness this process together, as each child develops new self-esteem and pride in his or her abilities.
Multiple disciplines including ballet, jazz, tap, and contemporary are offered for all ages, from the youngest dancers through pre-collegiate and pre-professional training. 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.
