GDT's diverse arts movement for all ages and communities to enrich lives!

I liked the dance you taught us. When I got home I taught it to my Mom and sisters. Thank you – Bad dance Cole, Clive Elementary School
“GDT has not lost its focus for bridging the cultural, educational, and emotional divides. GDT offers outreach programs to agencies and institutions that lack humanities programs. Their continued involvement in the community provides a taste of diversity, but more importantly, is a catalyst for dialogue on how to bridge the cultural divide and how best to incorporate arts in the education of youth.” Tracy Levine, former Executive Director, Metro Arts Alliance of Greater Des Moines
“I was in the GDT program in middle school, and it’s one of the few programs that I still remember as an adult and I love it!” Julanda Taylor, Community School Coordinator, Des Moines Public SchoolsThe year 2022 marks 50 years of GDT in our community. We want YOU to be part of the celebration! Exciting events will occur all year and we will keep you updated.
