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.


Dance Year 2020-2021 is underway and we are open for in-studio instruction. Students will also have the option to learn remotely via Zoom.  View the class schedule by clicking on the CLASSES tab.

Current students should register via the Customer Portal.  New students should click NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION above.  Contact us by phone or email for more information: gdt@gastondance.com


Tickets will go on sale Friday, April 16th.  Seating is limited to 30% of capacity, so it’s recommended that you purchase in advance!
