GDC’s Primary Dance Division aims to establish basic classroom etiquette and primary coordination while continuing to foster a joy for movement. Each class includes work in the center, across the floor, and stretching to create body awareness that will enhance motor skills. Our Primary Combo classes provide exposure to two disciplines of dance which alternate every other week. All Primary Division classes perform in GDC’s annual Recital.
