We are proud to announce the kick-off of Peabody at McDonogh, a collaborative partnership with Johns Hopkins Peabody Preparatory. Peabody instructors will provide high-quality extracurricular arts instruction with a strong focus on sparking students' creativity, self-expression, and artistic abilities. Under normal circumstances, classes will be offered at McDonogh, but due to the pandemic, we are offering virtual programs.

Creative Dance sets a strong foundation for more formal dance study by strengthening movement/locomotive skills, increasing flexibility, developing awareness of the body, and by stimulating rhythmic awareness and expressiveness. The curriculum is designed to capitalize on the increasing strength, coordination, and cognitive abilities of four-year-old students; therefore, all students must be at least four-years-old by October 1. No previous dance experience or placement class required. This class will be taught virtually over Zoom. Tuition fees are listed for an 8-week session. Payment plan available. Minimum of 8 students.
