Registration for our 2022-2023 season is currently closed and we are not accepting any additional dancers. Registration will reopen in August 2023 for our next season!
The Towson Recreation Council Dance Program offers children the opportunity to dance in a friendly and safe environment. The age range is 18 months to 18 years. We currently offer classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Pointe, and both Ballet and Tap Technique. We also offer a Creative Movements class for our younger dancers. The age requirements are as follows:
Classes will take place at either Stoneleigh Elementary School, 900 Pemberton Road, Baltimore, MD 21212 or Dumbarton Middle School, 300 Dumbarton Road, Baltimore, MD 21212. Our program runs from the beginning of October until May. Classes will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings, and all day Saturdays.
For Dress Code and more information on what is needed for class please click on the “Important Pointes” tab on the left side of our page.
No pre-set schedule is made prior to registration with class dates and times. We create classes after registration because we do not want to turn any dancers away when age groups/classes fill up. If you sign up and are unable to make any of the class times for your child's age group, we will give you a full refund.

Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of bad weather, we follow the Baltimore County Public School (BCPS) system. If BCPS are closed or close early, then classes are cancelled. Also, if BCPS cancel all after school activities, we will not have class that evening. If there are BCPS delays in the morning, we will still have classes that afternoon/evening. If classes are cancelled, we will do our best to notify parents/dancers via e-mail as soon as possible. It will also be posted to our social media page.
