Dance Performances

Nothing makes our stage come alive like the dramatic movement of dance. Every year the Gordon Center welcomes an internationally-renowned dance troupe who also participates in community engagement with dance students from Baltimore County Public Schools. This outreach is supported by the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences.

Take a Leap 2023: Celebrating Black History Month through Dance

The Gordon Center for Performing Arts, in partnership with the Baltimore Black Dance Collective, is hosting a month-long celebration of Black Dance in America, throughout the month of February as part of Black History Month. In addition to a public performance of Hiplet Ballerinas on Tuesday, February 27, there will be workshops, classes, and other performances throughout the month.
