The Ideal Arts Space is a multi-purpose movement arts venue in Baltimore, MD located in the old Ideal movie theater on “the Avenue” in Hampden (905 W. 36th St. Baltimore 21211).
This venue is run by the swing dance school: Ministry of Swing, LLC. Ministry of Swing runs 6 levels of progressive West Coast Swing dance classes every month on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and 2 social dance Saturdays a month (usually first and third weekends).
In addition to hosting Ministry of Swing’s regular classes and social swing dances, the Ideal is available for rent for arts groups or individuals for classes, rehearsals, performances or private events. We’ve been thrilled to host groups like Bmore Musical and the Baltimore Improv Group for their performances and SalsaNow for their Monday night latin dance classes!
The Ideal is also a great place to find hand-made items from many of Baltimore’s local crafters and artisans! Check our Pop Up Show page for the next great event!
