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

Summer Session 2024 begins on June 10th! 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 is open now!
