The school follows the ISTD syllabi in ballet, modern theatre and tap dance preparing children and students for exams on a regular basis. All children are given the opportunity to take examinations in their chosen genres. Children are accepted into the school from age three.
GSD offers its pupils the chance to perform in their shows which take place every other year and are held at The Walter Roy Theatre, Norwich. This gives the pupils a chance to experience the wonder of performing on stage to a live audience and the latter is an excellent opportunity for them to showcase their creative skills.
Past GSD pupils have furthered their training at various vocational colleges – Bird College, Elmhurst Ballet School, London Contemporary, London Studio Centre, Masters College, Northern Ballet School, Performers College, Stella Mann College and Tiffany Theatre College. Pupils have also attended classes for The Royal Ballet Associates.
