Why Choose Garden City Dance Academy?



Our biannual performances  offer excellent opportunities for students to display their dance skills. At GCDA, we emphasise the importance of performing in dance as an art form. Performing on stage not only boosts confidence and self-esteem but also provides a sense of accomplishment through the learning, mastering, and presentation process.



At GCDA, every student is valued and receives equal treatment, allowing them to progress at their individual pace. Small class sizes ensure personalised attention, cultivating an intimate and supportive environment.



Our small and dedicated team of 3 teachers brings expertise and passion to every class, ensuring a safe, positive, and friendly learning atmosphere.
