We built the dance studio we always dreamed of...


Whilst GC Dance is a successful small business, it's always been a heart-centred project of passion.

When Georgia was a young ballerina studying at The Australian Ballet School, she always dreamed of a space that was inclusive, caring, beautiful and holistic.

Georgia fell in love with ballet and all forms of dance from a young age but never quite found the environment she was looking for.

In partnership with her Mum (Sharron) they endeavoured to build a studio that was the perfect balance between boutique and professional.

They opened their doors in 2013 and have been committed to serving GC Dance families for over a decade.
