History of The School of Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre
The School of Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, one of Canada’s leading dance training centres, was founded in 1983 by Artistic Director Deborah Lundmark. The School’s expert faculty seeks to make an art of the natural joy of movement found in every child, providing a unique alternative to competition-based training. The School offers children’s dance classes, adult dance classes, pre-professional programs, and summer dance programs. Classes offered include RAD Ballet and Limón Modern, as well as Creative Movement, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Tap, and Hip Hop.

Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre is a repertory company founded in 1980 for emerging artists under 19 years of age by Artistic Director, Deborah Lundmark, and Managing Director, Michael deConinck Smith. Company members and audiences alike enjoy one of Canada’s largest and most diverse repertoires including creations by such dance luminaries as David Earle, Carol Anderson, Danny Grossman, Margie Gillis, and Peggy Baker and, more recently, Colin Connor, Jennifer Archibald, Apolonia Velasquez, Hanna Kiel, Jera Wolfe, and Gioconda Barbuto, among many others. Presentation highlights include appearances at Toronto’s Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra Theatres for the Creative Trust and Dancers for Life Galas and five invitations to the Canada Dance Festival in Ottawa. A leading touring company, CCDT has introduced over 300,000 young people to dance through its Ontario Arts Access program, and won the Toronto Arts Foundation’s prestigious Arts for Youth Award for its development of young artists and young audiences.
