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.


We hope you’re making plans to attend the GDT Summer Session which begins on June 12th! Please reach out by phone or email for the best options for your dancer.  You can view the class schedule under the CLASSES tab.  To register, click NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION above.
