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.


Registration for Dance Year 2021-2022 will open on August 9th.  GDT will host an Open House event on August 22nd from 1:00-3:00.  Drop in to meet our staff and learn about our programs!
