The North Carroll Dance Studio, located in Manchester,

Maryland, was founded over 35 years ago. For years,

the NC Dance Studio has made dancing affordable and

accessible for many children and adults in Northern Carroll

County. Dancers at NC Dance learn from professional,

compassionate teachers who strive to make the art of dance

challenging, yet attainable.


The main goal of NC Dance is to provide students with added confidence and professionalism that they can carry with them for future opportunities like job interviews, college admittance, and even auditions!  Our teachers provide a fun, safe learning environment for all students- we want everyone to leave our doors with a smile on their face!  We accept students from age 3 years through adult, and we offer classes in all types of genres including, ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, acro/tumbling, musical theater, hip hop/jazz funk, conditioning, & even yoga.  Our studio is perfect for any parent searching for a beginner level activity for their young child- dance at NC Dance promotes instruction and listening skills from other qualified adults, along with patience, and healthy physical activity. We also provide recreational opportunities for dancers looking to participate in fun weekly movement, learning proper dance technique and skills at any age level.  


In addition, NC Dance offers instruction for serious dancers who wish to make dancing their main extracurricular activity.  We have many dancers who are training for high school, collegiate, or professional opportunities. NC Dance appreciates and celebrates dancers of all abilities, shapes, sizes, colors, ages, and is open for both girls and boys. Our season runs for nearly 10 months- starting after Labor Day and concluding in mid-June with end of the year performances at nearby Manchester Valley High School. We are proud to share our love for dance, and we continue to promote the many positive outcomes of supporting the arts with so many young lives in our community. Dance at NC Dance is always meant to be FUN, and we take time to ensure each student is enjoying their time in the studio. We love seeing past, present, and even future dancers walk through our doors.  Stop by or contact us anytime to see what we can do for your dancer at NC Dance!
