If you are interested in a dance experience with a more relaxed pace, our REC DANCE classes might suit your family better.

Please view our  COMPARISON CHART to see the differences among GCDC, REC and ACRO classes.


REC DANCE: REC DANCE 1 (ages 3-5) and REC DANCE 2 (ages 6-8) will explore dance movement within a Christian environment. Using only Christian music or instrumentals and modest movement, girls will be exposed to various disciplines on an introductory level. They will also experience the use of different worship elements such as tambourines and ribbons. REC DANCE begins on January 6, 2020 and continues through to our Showcase at the end of May. Enrollment for REC DANCE closes on February 24, 2020. Classes will be taught by Mrs. Amanda Vargo, alumni of GCDC.

SHOWCASE:  REC dancers have one performance at the end of the season. This showcase takes place at Crossroads Church. Along with our REC dancers, this showcase also features dancers in our BALLET, ACRO and TAP classes.  To participate in the showcase, dancers must be enrolled at least for the months of March, April and May. The showcase is an informal presentation of what the girls have been learning in class.  It will be approximately 45-60 minutes in length with a cookie reception to follow.  There is no ticket cost for this event, but we will need a head count ahead of time. Parents will need to sign up to bring items for the reception.

LOCATION: Crossroads Church 1120 Boyce Road Upper St. Clair, PA 15241
