#ECSTRONG | Farmers' Market | Fall 2018-19



What an unexpectedly challenging time this has been for the residents, businesses, and community of Ellicott City! We are amazed at this strong community with its resilient spirit, and we are incredibly grateful to be a part of it.

Ballet Conservatoire XIV, along with many other businesses, is proudly moving forward with Ellicott City, calling beautiful Main Street home. Everyone is working hard together to reopen and rebuild, keeping this lovely town thriving.

Projects underway in Ellicott City include an early warning system and construction of culverts and retention ponds to prevent flooding and damages. A list of efforts can be found on the county’s watershed master plan website.

Many of you know that we are currently in a temporary location in Dorsey Hall, with Main Street expected to be opening in about 4 weeks. We are excited to be back in our building then, holding our summer programs as scheduled.


Find us at the farmers' market!

Stop by and see us Saturdays, 9-1pm.

All of us at BCXIV are deeply grateful for your patience and support, and we look forward to seeing you this summer and for the Fall 2018-19 school year!

Temporary Location

BCXIV has found a temporary home for the next several weeks, generously donated by Don Reuwer, owner of Waverly Real Estate Group.  The entrance is 5146 Dorsey Hall Dr, Ellicott City.  Our suite is upstairs on the left.  Free parking is available.

We will hold private training and placement classes at this location until early July, when access to Main Street is scheduled to be restored.  To schedule a lesson or placement class, please email info@conservatoirexiv.com or contact your regular teacher directly.

We look forward to working with you!

Classes Canceled, School Building Inaccessible

Because of the flooding that has ravaged Ellicott City, Ballet Conservatoire XIV is neither accessible nor usable and likely will not be for some time.  Therefore, classes are canceled.  We do not yet have a timeline for when classes may resume but will update here when we do.  To receive email updates, please enter your email address at the bottom of this page.

BCXIV stands with all the residents and businesses on Main Street as we all work together to recover from this disastrous flood.  Many thanks to those who have expressed their support.  We will continue to remain in contact as the next steps become clearer.
