Welcome to County Ballet... established in 1981. 
Our family of dancers has been growing for over 40 years.
Many of our dancers have been here all that time and they are still dancing! 
Whether you begin as a youngster or an adult, dance is a lifetime fitness fun activity.​
Kind words said about County Ballet:

We have so enjoyed being a part of your studio! What a welcoming and wonderful place!! 
Thank you for inspiring our girls and promoting a love of dancing

Ms Pam,
Just a note to tell you how much I appreciated you as a teacher. I did Pilates with you for 3.25 months and never got injured. That's a record for me. I've taken all kinds of classes with all kinds of professionals ( and non-professionals) and always wound up injured or going to the chiropractor in pain. You obviously are exceptional at what you do. I'm so pleased with my progress. I can do 100s with my head and legs raised with little effort and no neck pain! I felt great holding my own with the college kids, too..

County Ballet has always been like a second home to me. Throughout the years, Miss Pam has taught me so much more than just how to dance. This has always been such a welcoming studio, no matter what age, dance background, or ability level. I've been dancing with County Ballet for 25 years, 
and I hope to continue for 25 more!

County Ballet is a great studio to enroll any child or adult. Strong emphasis on technique, affordable rates, professional teachers, and performance opportunities through Part Two Dance Company.

It was exciting to learn to tap dance as an adult. It's never too late! I started when I was single. Now married and two children later, I'm still happy tapping.
Janet, Cockeysville

COVID-19 UPDATE 5/12/21 We will be updating to follow new protocol.
As you may have heard, effective Friday March 12th, the Governor of MD has lifted the space restrictions on indoor places including retail stores and dance studios. 
We are very happy for the continued progress towards an unrestricted way of life again, but we still have rules in place that must be followed until then. Below is a breakdown of how we will conduct business at County Ballet and the Dance Shop based on the latest mandates as well as our own policies until the next Executive Order is issued:
Masks are still required for everyone in the building
Hand washing will still be required upon entry for everyone
If you are visiting the store we ask that you please keep your party to a minimum of the dancer(s) and the payee if possible
We will still provide curb-side pick-up if needed
Our waiting area will remain closed to parents at this time. We are working very hard to help your children develop their independence and sense of responsibility towards dance class. Your continued support of practicing how quickly and efficiently they transition from street wear to class wear and vice versa is appreciated. 
We will continue to sanitize between classes and customers. We will continue to not share equipment during classes, and the equipment will be sanitized between classes.
No stuffed toys. Labeled water bottles are allowed. (Any bottle left behind will be thrown away.)
Since we only have a few weeks left in our current Spring session, classes will remain as they are with distancing requirements to keep the continuity of instruction.  Spring session,  as we have always done, our classes remain smaller (max of 9) to ensure your child gets individualized instruction in every class.
Who should NOT come to class:
Any dancer with a fever, coughing, sneezing, intestinal issues or runny nose. 
Any dancer with an ill family member. 
Anyone who feels like they cannot comply with these stipulations.

Kelly Schulz, secretary of the state's commerce department, praised Marylanders for doing their part to keep their communities safe, but said the battle against COVID-19 isn't over.
"Today's announcement does not mean it's time to start letting our guard down. It means staying safe works. Wearing masks works. Giving people more distance works. Washing your hands a lot works," she said. "That's how we got to this point, so we should feel good about that, but we still have some work to do."
"Remember, it's not just about being safe. It's about making sure we feel safe and making sure that the people that come into our businesses and the general public feel safe to be in our businesses and within our places of employment," she said. "Building that confidence is the essential part of our ongoing economic recovery."

Our mission...
To provide a dance center of quality dance instruction for a lifetime of learning in dance/art related activities at a reasonable price. Our professional Dance Educators challenge and encourage our students in a nurturing environment. 
Entering our classes now are several children from the first dancers who graced our doors, and several of our customers have continued with us throughout the past 40 years
The Part Two Dance Company, a non-profit company, provides the dancers who are interested in performance preparation with an avenue of theatre to explore. The company performs around the Baltimore Harford County region, with a diverse range of repertory.

Someone once said, Owning a dance studio is no waltz to riches, but it certainly is an ongoing, never ending dance of delight.
