Each year Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre invites young dancers, ages 8-19, to audition for the upcoming season, beginning in September. CCDT dancers come from a variety of training, cultural, and economic backgrounds but all share a passion for the expressive power and range of modern and contemporary dance choreography that is created by leading dance artists.
Company members commit to an 11-month season. From September through May they rehearse, perform and take 7-8 dance classes per week* (approximately 20-25 weekly hours in studio). In June members participate in The School of CCDT's annual showcase, and in July new and returning dancers attend our three-week international SunDance summer intensive* in preparation for the following season.
Auditioning dancers may be accepted into:
• the CCDT Company (with full training, rehearsal, and performance/touring responsibilities)
• the CCDT Company as an Apprentice (with full training and rehearsal responsibilities, and partial performance/touring responsibilities)
• the Young Apprentice Program
• the Core Apprentice Program
• CCDT's SunDance Summer Dance Intensive*
*dancers accepted to CCDT's Company or Apprentice Programs receive automatic acceptance to SunDance.
