Garth Fagan Dance School - GFDS


The Garth Fagan Dance School (GFDS), located in Rochester, NY, teaches Garth Fagan’s signature dance language and under the motto “Discipline is Freedom,” uses the study of dance to impact the lives of young and old alike. The mission of GFDS is to create an environment where an appreciation for the arts, particularly dance, is achieved through the teaching of the Fagan technique, guided field trips to local cultural institutions, and engaging students in readings, criticism and analysis of dance. Second, the school hopes to be a developmental tool for all ages, building self-esteem and leadership qualities, and helping with the emergence of mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthy human beings. Finally, the school has long been a place to train dancers for the professional dance world. GFDS provides weekly dance classes for ages 3-adult. The student body is economically, ethnically and geographically diverse. More than 40% of students receive scholarships to attend GFDS.
