The Gillian Easdale School of Dancing was first established in 1979 in Johnstone. In 2016 Gillian handed the school over to her daughter Rachael who is now the Principle Teacher. Although Gillian still helps at classes and makes the costumes.
We have had a few changes of venues through the years. After 17 years at Glenburn Parish Church Hall in Paisley, in November 2021 we finally were able to open our own dance studios based in Espedair Street in Paisley.
We are qualified and teach in the branches; Ballet, Tap, Modern Dance, Freestyle, Cheerleading and have recently added Acro Dance to our timetable. We take children from 2 1/2 years right through to adult. As well as children classes we have popular adult classes for beginner and intermediate tap.
We always endevour to encourage our pupils and students to attain their best performance and improve their abilities,confidence and poise no matter whether they are 3 or 30 or over 60 years of age!
