a great place to grow up

Our Dance Studio Mission

For excellence in dance education call Gainesville Dance Center, located in Haymarket and Gainesville, Virginia. When you join GDC you don't just join a dance studio, you join a dance family that we like to call our "Ohana". In a safe, positive, and fun environment, our staff teaches dance instruction those students who are interested to dance on a professional level as well as those who simply want to learn for fun or the exercise and recreation. Students will learn coordination, mobility, flexibility, send of rhythm, and the importance of teamwork. They will develop self-discipline and self-esteem, responsibility, community, independence, and respect. Welcome home to the GDC Ohana, and come experience the difference.
