Founded in 1982, Gaston Dance Theatre offers a professional curriculum for ballet, jazz, tap and modern. Classes are offered to children beginning at three years of age and to adults.  GDT serves a cultural need in the community by creating and/or presenting a repertoire of classical and contemporary dance works.  Our studios are housed at Unity Place – home of St. Stephen’s AME Zion Church – across the street from Gastonia City Hall.


Gaston Dance Theatre will offer a variety of classes and camps for students ages 4 and up this summer.  Please check out our offerings under the Classes tab or call 704-865-5943 for more information.


Mark your calendar for Nutcracker 2017!  It will be December 1-3 at Gaston Day School.  Reserved seating tickets will go on sale approximately six weeks before the show.
