are Saying about
"My husband and I are so grateful to Black Rock for providing such a great education in art and music for our children. Our children have been nourished so well at the Center. We have always been treated with respect and professionalism at Black Rock. We are the proud parents of Black Rock Center!"
- Maryam Garzan, North Potomac
"I needed a camp that would offer me flexibility with quality programming that would my kids would enjoy, but not break the bank. I am thrilled to say that Black Rock Center for the Arts answered ALL our needs. The building is well designed to provide the children with their own space while at the same time being an intimate setting. It is wonderful to have Black Rock in Montgomery County, not just for what it offers but also for the very reasonable cost of these programs. One of the best features of Black Rock is their summer camp program. Nowhere have I seen quality programming, at a quality price, with quality people running the programs."
- Michelle and Eric Stoll, Potomac
"The facility is lovely and like new which really lends to the learning atmosphere. It's important that the floors are good for dancers so my daughter won't injure her knees. I love Blackrock for the rental potential too. My son's orchestra rented the Main Theater to perform there. I loved the intimate feel to the theater and being able to sit so close to the stage and see and hear everything."
