I’d like to formally introduce you to this year’s Alice, Pearl. She is 17 years old and in the 11th grade. She has been a GCDT company member for 5 years! In our last production, Pearl was one of the step sisters and brought such a great level of comedy to the show, I can’t wait to see what she creates for the Alice character!

What is your favorite part about being Alice?

My favorite part of being Alice is being able to play the character after being in the show for so many years and really being able to make it my own.

How has being in GCDT affected your life?

Being in the company has really helped me to grow as a dancer and performer and has given me so many memories with friends and family.

What is your goal or aspiration in life?

My goal in life is to become a professional ballet dancer and be able to make a living something that I love!

Now that I’ve had a wonderful week of rest and I’m caught up on sleep, I want to take the time to sincerely thank all my dancers, co-choreographers (friends), dance families, and our amazing audience for a wonderful double production of Winter Gala and Act 1 of Cinderella❤️❤️❤️

I am so very proud of what we presented to our friends, family, and community! It was also the most amazing way to honor Nina❤️

Our Mission

Gulf Coast Dance Theater is organized for the primary purpose of providing a community forum for dancers. Gulf Coast Dance Theater provides comprehensive artistic education, that encourages excellence in the art of dance, while instilling a true love and passion for the art form.

Our goal - is to provide opportunities for dancers to perform in professional venues, to present their skills in performance art to the community, and to make dance accessible and affordable for everyone. ​

If desired, dancers can use these skills and experience to pursue a career, or attend college program in dance. In addition, the dancers will make lifelong friends, have endless amounts of performance opportunities, and receive excellent mentorship from our instructors. ​We also believe that it is important to create strong professional relationships
with our students, and once they graduate or move on, we continue to nurture and promote growth. ​
