Peace & Pliés

A note from our Director; Georgia Canning…

Since beginning the GC DANCE & TUTU TIMES journey it’s been my mission to bring grace to peoples lives and break down the elitist barriers often associated with ballet.

As I get older (and hopefully a little bit wiser!) I strongly believe you should take whatever it is that you’re best at and make the world a better place. For me, it’s ballet.


Tutu Times adult classes have always been about community and breaking down the elitist barriers often associated with ballet.

Some of our adult classes are a charitable donation and in the past we have given thousands of dollars to local Gold Coast charities and members of our GC Dance community who have fallen on hard times.

From today, all donations will go towards our Peace & Plies project.

…a community-based social impact program that provides ballet shoes, uniforms, equipment and other essential items (we often take for granted in the studio!) to underprivileged or remote areas.

Peace & Pliés helps celebrate the confidence, discipline, strength and grace that ballet can bring to anyones life.

So far as a community, we have managed to raise thousands of dollars that has helped build a dance centre in the slums of Nairobi (Kenya) and sponsor three ballet students at Dance Centre Kenya – Wendy, Iddah and Virginia
