Growth, Creativity, and Community

Seasonal Happenings at GC Dance Company

Here at GC Dance, we are one big dancin’ family. Our dance community is welcoming and always excited to meet new students from all around San Diego. Many of our dancers have been taking classes together for several seasons, and even through different school districts their friendships continue to grow.

Since arriving in Solana Beach, we have sought to mirror our active and vibrant community. We welcome students from all areas of San Diego, and have classes for children of all ages (3-18) and abilities. We offer a wide variety of classes, from hip hop to classical ballet, to jazz, ballroom, acro, musical theater, and contemporary. Our teachers are all award-winning and lifelong dancers who embody a collective passion for education, creativity, and community. Our director, Ms. Gabriella Carter, has won several choreography and technique awards. GCDC has been recognized as a Studio of Excellence and, among other accolades, our jazz-funk teacher, Jordan Bautista, was featured on NBC’s World of Dance Season 3. Our girls were so excited to cheer on their teacher and his crew!

For the first time, GC Dance Company will be putting on a winter Nutcracker production! Our production of the Nutcracker will feature classic ballet ensemble numbers, like the party scene with Clara, Fritz, and Dusseldorf as well as the Waltz of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The GCDC winter Nutcracker performance will be directed by two of our ballet teachers, Ms. Janica Breeze and Ms. Ariana Gonzalez, as well as our studio director, Ms. Gabriella Carter.

Our production includes dancers from all varieties of our classes including our tiniest ballerinas! Many students are excited for their very first on-stage performance. We are excited to share this classic holiday tradition with our community. We will perform our Nutcracker ballet on Friday, November 29 at the Garfield Theater, Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center. All are welcome to enjoy what is sure to be a spectacular show!

We at GC Dance Company are thrilled to be a part of the Solana Beach community. We have enjoyed two seasons of growth and friendship, as well as great success in both our recreation and competitive programs. Our students have made each year incredibly special and exciting. We strive to make our studio a place of warmth, growth, creativity, and community.
