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.
