New Spire Arts is a new performing arts nonprofit located in Downtown Frederick. We have two locations; our education building, New Spire Studios, is located on East Church St, and we have a new black box theatre, New Spire Stages, under construction at 15 W Patrick, across from the Weinberg.
New Spire Arts offers programs for all ages, infants to adults, in music, multimedia, movement, and theatre arts. We try not to compete with other organizations and instead we aim to partner with them and share our resources collaboratively. We’ve partnered with many organizations including the YMCA, SHIP (Student Homelessness Partnership Initiative), the Frederick Arts Council, Maryland School for the Deaf, the Downtown Frederick Partnership, the Delaplaine, Heartly House, and more.
We offer classes and workshops for all ages, plus summer camps for K-9th grade. We release new classes three times a year – a fall semester, spring semester, and summer semester. We try to keep classes affordable and provide need-based scholarships. The education branch of New Spire Arts is split into five tracks; two adult, two teen, and one youth.
