Update 8/17/2020: MBT has issued a new schedule of classes to all current families for the 2020-2021 academic year.  The new schedule is adjusted to accommodate needs identified during parent/student surveys for both in-studio and virtual class options, and to accommodate COVID-19 recovery Phase 2 guidelines for capacity.  This webpage has been updated to include the virtual and hybrid options. Additional sections may be added based on demand, or as COVID recovery allows for additional capacity in the studios. Please let us know if you don’t see a schedule that meets your needs.

Since 1989, MBT has served Maryland’s Montgomery County region with exceptional dance education, community outreach, and inspiring performances. MBT’s Academy offers classes in Creative Movement, Early Ballet, Classical Ballet, Contemporary Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip Hop,  Modern, and more, for ages 3 through adult. MBT offers classes for beginners as well as a track for pre-professional ballet students, and several performing opportunities for all students.
