ABOUT WMCBC

Western Maryland City Ballet Company is The City Ballet School’s professional training division. Serving as our studio company, our goal is to provide advanced training and performance opportunity to serious minded dancers and to prepare dancers for future work in a company.  The company performs 3 times a year including The Princess Tea Party, The Nutcracker, and a spring performance in addition to several other guest performances.
