Dance 352 was formed in 2017after the dissolution of the Gainesville Alliance of Culture and Art (GACA).


The hope of the Co-directors, Shay Smith and Karin Baker, is to share their love of dance with others of all ages. Dance 352 would like to be a place where dancers can come to not only learn, but have fun while acquiring valuable skills which will translate into the classroom as well as the community.

Our goal, is to bridge the connection between community, education, and dance.

We are a safe space to explore your dance abilities with teachers who are more than happy to guide you in reaching your goals
