The Mid Maryland Performing Arts Center impacts lives through its commitment to excellent performing arts education. As one of Frederick’s most respected schools for dance and musical theater, MMPAC welcomes students of all ages and abilities to experience the arts in a safe and enriching environment. In addition to developing valuable skills in discipline, teamwork, communication, confidence, time management, and healthy living, our students also gain strong and comprehensive dance technique that can lead to a professional career in dance. Since 1989, MMPAC has been introducing the joy of movement to Frederick-area students. Our teaching staff is made up of professionally-trained dancers, many with advanced degrees and professional certifications. They are generous with their students, inspiring them, eliciting their creativity, and serving as their mentors. With over 100 classes offered each week in our two state-of-the-art facilities in Frederick and New Market, we believe there is something here for everyone.
