Glasgow Dance Academy Open Day!

With only a few weeks left until Glasgow Dance Academy breaks for summer we have been working hard preparing for our open day.  On the last day of kids classes we are inviting parents, friends, Aunties, Uncles, cousins, Grans, pets, ANYONE who wants to come and see the hard work the students have put in this term.  It is so important to us at GDA that the students work is recognised.  We will be showing some of the more technical exercises we practice in Ballet, Jazz and Tap class on a Saturday as well as our free work and dances.  The students are extremely excited about showing all the new steps they have learnt and sharing our work.


There has been a marked improvement, particularly in the 4+ Ballet and Jazz classes, as they show understanding of what is expected from them within their class.  This is a great achievement for dancers as young as four.  The classes not only teach children how to dance but parallel with learning how to follow instruction, develop a good work ethic, social skills, improving confidence, develop cognitive ability and motor skills.  The result of this are evident in the positive atmosphere within the class and the friendships forming as the weeks go by.


This is the kind of ethos Glasgow Dance Academy strives for and we can’t wait to share it with you on Saturday 20th June.


Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Glasgow Dance Academy Uniforms

Last week Glasgow Dance Academy had the pleasure of working with three beautiful ballet dancers.  Louisa, Charlotte and Imogen modelled (and helped choose) the new Glasgow Dance Academy uniform.  As you can see from the picture below it was a tough decision but we settled on the red.  The red represents GDA best: bold, bright and different.  This will be the uniform for the Saturday classes, for exams and class presentations to friends and family.  The girls did a great job trying on lots of different possibilities and was good practice for showtime, when the girls will have to change costumes quickly.

The girls are enjoying classes in Ballet, Jazz and Tap at Glasgow Dance Academy on Saturday morning‘s in Thornwood.  The students at GDA are becoming good friends and improving every week.  GDA are welcoming new students every week and are excited to introduce students to the wonderful world of dance, encouraging and inspiring students to achieve their goals, keep fit and have fun.  We will need to decide on the uniform for the upper school soon.  Should we all be red or something different?  GDA will be on the lookout for our next set of models from our Tuesday evening classes in the Westend.

We are also excited to announce that our very own Glasgow Dance Academy hoodie will be available soon – a cool grey with a bright red logo.  Look out for Hazel wearing hers at class. If you would like one just ask and we will get it ordered.  Pictures coming soon…

See you at class.
