Youth & Teen Arts

Teenagers performing on stage.

The J believes strongly in the power of arts education, which is why we offer a variety of performing arts classes to keep even the tiniest toddlers in mind. From dance, theatre, to choir, the J community offers safe, inclusive, and age-appropriate artistic opportunities to hone their skills and express themselves creatively.

Your emerging artist will be guided by Baltimore’s top artistic professionals and organizations which will encourage exploring new talent, skills and ideas. We offer classes with expert instructors so that learning is always thrilling and exciting. Private lessons are also available for individual instruction in voice, dance, music, acting and audition technique.

We’re now offering even more theatre and dance opportunities for grades 1-8. Learn more by diving into our program descriptions below and find a place for your artist to learn, grow, and thrive through performance and creative expression.
