What Does GDA Do?
Technology is an ever-growing presence in our daily lives, including social media and cyber bullying. Global Dance Art (GDA) teaches ballroom dance to students. On the surface that seems straight forward, but at a closer look GDA teaches students human interaction, respect, creativity, and a need to work together to achieve a goal. The vehicle is ballroom dance with its many faces and characters of Latin and Standard dances; the result for our students is an increased sense of accomplishment, self-confidence, respect for others, acceptance of individual differences, the importance of practice to achieve a goal, exercise, posture, and feeling the music.
Who Do We Teach?
Our student base is comprised of general students participating in onsite or public-school enrichment programs. Our Differently-Abled Program is specifically developed to support students with varying levels of functionality.
