Young, Hip and Charismatic, Dallas Dance Was ‘Hero’ to Many When He Led Baltimore County Schools

Few educators become superintendents of large school systems in their 30s. Daniel Domenech, executive director of the American Association of School Administrators, called Dance a young star.

“He was an articulate, charismatic young leader who showed a great deal of promise,” Domenech said.

Now Dance, 37, faces the prospect of months or years in prison. He pleaded guilty Thursday to four counts of perjury for concealing payments he earned from consulting jobs while serving as superintendent, including $90,000 from a company he helped win a no-bid contract with the school system. He will be sentenced on April 20th, his birthday.
