Recreational Program


Learn how to dance for the sheer fun of it! Our recreational program provides both performance and technique classes in the following disciplines: Acro, Ballet, Bollywood, Breakin’, Contemporary, Creative MovementHip Hop, Improvisation, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern, Musical Theater, Performance Fundamentals, PointeStrength & Stretch, Tap, West African and Yoga.

Our Fall & Spring performance (a.k.a., recital) classes focus on skills via two choreographed pieces for our December Recital and June Recital. Teen/Adult classes may vary–please confirm with the instructor.

Our technique classes address crucial technical aspects of each art form, which include strength, flexibility, body awareness and placement. These technique classes also involve instruction in turning, jumping and leaping via across-the-floor exercises and center-floor combinations for jazz, ballet and Acro. With regards to tap, articulation, speed, style and memorization tend to be the main focus. Please note: Though our technique classes do not typically perform, we may receive requests to do so and will therefore accommodate based off of a majority need. Please contact admin or the appropriate instructor to confirm.

Registration/Payment Clarification for New Families

You must register for at least one class in order to create a customer account. You will then be able to access your account via the “Customer Portal” located at the top of our website. If you do not intend to take a class, please do not create an account. When you register, you will be asked to plug in your credit/debit card information. For Fall/Spring Session, your card will NOT be charged at the time you enter in this information but on the first of the month you start taking classes. For Summer Session, if you are a recreational student, your card will be charged the week your camp/classes begin. Though, for both sessions, please account for payment the day of enrollment if you’ve registered AFTER classes have begun. From your account, you may pay as soon as GDSC posts fees.

If a class does not meet the minimum requirement of 5 participants, the class may be cancelled.

Please review the agreements you signed upon enrollment by logging into your account (Customer Portal located at the top left of our website) or heading directly to the following web page: Enrollment Policy Agreements.

Our Fall session will begin September 13 and end December 17.
