windows on one side of Hollywood BallroomThis Silver Spring ballroom is one of the Baltimore-Washington area’s largest and most versatile ballroom dance venues, offering a variety of social, instructional and special events, throughout the week and all year around. While unofficially we are known as “The Silver Spring Ballroom,” we are conveniently located on the Baltimore Washington corridor directly off of Rt. 29, in the suburbs of Montgomery County, and it’s just a short drive to Howard County and Baltimore.

Stepping onto our authentic floating floor feels almost like dancing on air, while our high ceilings and festive lighting compose an ideal backdrop for an entertaining and memorable evening.

Our Ballrooms

The main ballroom is about 6,400 square feet and is usually arranged with seating around the perimeter to allow a generous space for dancing.  We are proud of our state-of-the art, 4-inch thick, floating solid-maple floor. Sometimes called a sprung floor, a floating floor absorbs shocks, giving it a softer feel for dancing. These floors are also known to reduce injuries and minimize fatigue.

The smaller ballroom, the Studio, is about 750 square feet and has a mirrored wall.  It is connected to the main ballroom and is perfect for more intimate events and celebrations. View photos.

Take Five Café

Adjacent to both the main ballroom and the smaller studio is the Take Five Café. The Café is open during most dances and offers an assortment of light food as well as beverages including wine, beer and spirits.

Our History

The dance hall at 2126 Industrial Parkway in Silver Spring, Maryland, first opened in 1991. Hollywood Ballroom Dance Center now occupies the space, and under the dynamic direction of its owner and managers, this Silver Spring ballroom enjoys a large following of devoted dancers.
