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 2023-24

Dance Year 2023-24 ends on May 17th, but Summer Session is just around the corner!  For ultimate flexibility, GDT will use a class card system for our 7-week summer term.  When registering, simply select the number of hours of classes you’d like to purchase.  Enrollment opens on May 2nd.

Please reach out by phone or email to learn more.  You can view the class schedule under the CLASSES tab.  To register, click NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION above.
