The Studio 180 Scout Badge Program
Studio 180 Dance has partnered with Girl Scouts of Central Maryland in order to help girl scouts of all ages earn badges and have fun while learning about dance, theater, and performing arts. It is Studio 180 Dance's philosophy to share our love of dance and we know that dancers who develop a high level of competency in each selected discipline will enjoy the benefits of healthy bodies, grace, confidence, technique, conditioning and the natural byproducts of joy, artistry, and performance skill.
Our experienced staff is able to teach all ages and all levels of dance. This is a great opportunity to learn, grow, and bond with fellow troop members.
In order to meet the requirements for the badge the girls would need to attend a two hour session. Sessions are generally available on Saturdays, or as our schedule permits. During this time girl scouts work with professional dance and theater teachers to earn their badges. Girls should come dressed in a leotard and tights or exercise clothes. They may wish to bring ballet slippers, jazz shoes, or tennis shoes.
Some of the badges we can help Girl Scouts earn are:
Brownies: The "Dancer" Badge, as part of the "World of Girls" Journey Brownies can take in the National Program. For more information, please click here, and to order the badge, please click here.
Junior Girl Scouts: The "Staying Fit" Badge, as part of the "aMUSE" Journey Juniors take in the National Program. For more information, please click here, and to order the badge, please click here.
Cadets and Daisy Troupes: Although there are not direct links to dance in the journeys for these groups, if you find a badge you think we can help your scouts earn, we are more than happy to! Please email us at
if you have suggestions or ideas!
We can also help your scouts earn the Girl Scout "Dance" fun patch, which is not an official badge, but can be worn on the back of the uniform vests/sash. To view this badge, please click here.
Our Zumbatomic® program and various conditioning classes may also meet the requirements for other fitness badges. Scout leaders are welcome to talk with owner, Katie Carpenter King, about additional offerings.
Sessions must be booked two weeks in advance and are available, schedule permitting. In order to host a session we need a minimum of 10 girl scouts, at a cost of $15 per girl. All fees are due at the time of booking and are nonrefundable. We’ll need a final headcount 2 days before the session to ensure we have enough materials. Fees do not include physical badges, which should be purchased by scout leaders.
