To enhance the role of dance throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area with free and affordable classes, performances, activities and more. Dance Baltimore believes everybody dances–for fun, for fitness, for life!

On June 28, 2002,representatives from the local dance community gathered to discuss the state of dance in the Baltimore metropolitan area and how dance professionals from all areas of the field could share and build audiences. The first Baltimore Dance Summit attracted 35 dance professionals from throughout the area.

Ballet, modern, tap, jazz, hip hop, and ethnic dance educators, performers, choreographers, students, studio and school owners, as well as administrators, and local and state government representatives came together to identify issues of concern and develop a plan to share the beauty and benefits of dance to the broader community and enhance the role of dance in the city. The group identified four areas of focus— areas where efforts of improvement could be made to achieve the overall goal.

  • · Audience development
  • · Media visibility
  • · Networking within the dance community, and
  • · Increased performance opportunities
