Fall Registration

Enroll now!


Everyone can express their feelings through dance - and at Misako Beats, we dance with joy.

We opened Misako Beats to celebrate our natural sense of rhythm and offer many different styles of dance. We offer hip hop, pop-cardio, belly dance, tap and of course, we teach ballet. Our instructors are trained professionals with backgrounds in a variety of different dance styles. We teach students ages 3 - adults, because we know that music and movement can spark happiness at every age. - Misako Beats

As a longtime dance writer for the local newspapers - 40 years and counting - I know dance and the teachers who support this art. Nobody is more qualified nor caring than Misako when it comes to dance. Folks often ask where I dance, since they know I am totally aware of the Maryland centers that offer ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop, and creative movement. I never hesitate to say Misako Beats, a beautiful studio on Marrriotsville Road. I also take classes at her original studio in the Harper’s Farm Villlage Center, just above the Dunkin Donuts. You can read my reviews of the Misako Ballet on DCMTA or online stories at Triblink.com, the company that runs the Baltimore Sun and Howard County Times. She’s terrific. Don’t miss out.

Classically Trained Instructors

All of our instructors are carefully selected for each class and have accrued valuable experience in ballet and dance. Many of our ballet instructors have performed for various professional companies. Together, Misako Dance instructors create a team of professionals who love what they do.

Low Instructor to Student Ratio

We provide a fun and warm environment. We're also focused on helping children learn self-discipline and essential life skills. Our low teacher to student ratio allows our instructors to create a customized dance experience.

Costume Rental

We want our students to look and feel special in their costumes. We choose costumes to match the stories of our ballets. Misako Dance has a large variety of unique dance costumes that students rent for recitals. This allows our growing dancers to enjoy wearing high quality costumes while staying budget-friendly.

Professional Sprung Floors

Our students at Misako Dance are taught in state-of-the-art dance studios complete with authentic sprung action floors. This ensures that our students have the best in safety and comfort at a professional level.

Student Performance Opportunities

Zumbini & Creative movement classes

Our youngest students participate in informal classroom showings for their families.

Lower Division and Upper Division dance classes

Students have 2 performance opportunities during the year, the Holiday Concert (held at the studio) and the Spring Performance (held at the Jim Rouse Theatre). Performances give our students a chance to showcase their hard work and to experience the excitement of bringing a story to life on the stage.

Sr Student Company and Jr Student Company

Students who are accepted into a student company have additional performing opportunities alongside our professional non-profit company, Misako Ballet Company. Students may take part in a professional performance in February as well as in several festival and community performances throughout the year.
