About BSA


The Baltimore School for the Arts completed an extensive renovation and expansion in December of 2007. The school is now housed in two connected buildings, the landmark Alcazar Building, formerly a hotel dating to the 1920’s, and a mid-19th century historic Brownstone at 704 Cathedral Street. Designed to support the school’s mission and unique needs, BSA facilities include:

  • three state-of-the-art dance studios;
  • a recital hall and an historic performance hall;
  • a black box theatre;
  • ensemble rehearsal and teaching studios for music and theatre;
  • keyboard labs and music MIDI studio;
  • a digital photography lab, art studios and an exhibition gallery.
  • a video/audio/design lab for theatre production, and costume and scene shops;
  • new academic and science classrooms/labs and a lecture hall;
  • a library housing the Center for Collaborative Arts & Technology; and
  • a fitness center.

"I was an inner-city kid, and the school exposed me for the first time to a number of cultures. That helped to break down biases. From 8 to 4, it was our own little utopia."
