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.


In response to state and local health regulations, GDT canceled in-person classes and moved to an online format for the remainder of the dance year. We are now on our end-of-the-season break, but hope to re-open soon.  Please check back here or follow us on Facebook to see what’s happening!  You are also welcome to email the office for more information: gdt@gastondance.com
