About Us

Welcome to the Gulf Coast Dance Alliance, a premiere dance studio serving the Gulf Coast Region.

GCDA was founded on the family values and principles that we maintain in our community. Founded by Melissa and Carlos Covo, Gulf Coast Dance Alliance was created to enrich the lives of their own children and the community at large. As a family owned studio, GCDA provides a family friendly atmosphere while maintaining a high level of professional.

To all our GCDA Dancers and their Families,

Thank you for all your support through out the years. If not for the kindness and support from our community, we could have never managed to become the great studio we are today. Our students are not just dancers, they are our children, our friends children. and our children’s friends. Looking forward to continuing to serve our community with the highest of level of dance eduction in the Gulf Coast.
