  • positive review  I can’t say enough good things about GDA and how they have handled the current situation we are in. No one was prepared for this, yet they set up calls with the dancers and their teachers right away and have been sending they daily activities to keep them engaged. They haven’t skipped a beat! Great job GDA! I am proud to say my daughter dances at Greendale now even more!

Giving Back

GDA dancers raised $940 by competing at The Power of Dance for prize money instead of trophies. They also showcase their talents by entertaining residents of local nursing homes and performing for their own school events. We believe in developing well-rounded dancers that also give back to the community.

Dance Is Fun!

Twenty five years ago I started GDA to provide outstanding instruction and to make dance enjoyable for everyone! My staff love working with children and strive to build each child’s self-esteem and confidence through the art of dance. The friendships made here make us feel like one big family…the GDA Family. Whether training to become a professional, improving on what you know or because your child never stops dancing around the house, I encourage you to come and try a class at GDA. I look forward to meeting you!
