Girls Geared For Greatness is designed to empower and inspire girls ages 7-18 through meaningful and unique training opportunities, workshops, and seminars.


Giving girls the tools they need to achieve and believe that anything is possible.


Founded in 2018 by Chasta Hamilton, the Owner/Artistic Director of Stage Door Dance Productions in Raleigh, NC, Girls Geared For Greatness was created as an action-oriented response to shifting societal trends.

After stepping away from the competitive dance industry, Stage Door Dance Productions recognized the need to infuse their programming with more training opportunities that were inclusive of character development and leadership skills.

The program creates conversation around relevant topics that empower girls to succeed in their personal and professional lives.

The messaging transcends the dance industry, and it is the intent of the organization to make sure all girls, parents, teachers, and stakeholders are able to benefit from the conversations and programming.


In its first season, Girls Geared for Greatness reached over 200 girls with sessions in leadership, branding, perseverance, and entrepreneurship.
