Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre

Launched in 1980 by Artistic Director Deborah Lundmark and Managing Director Michael deConinck Smith, Toronto-based Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre has staged more than 1,500 performances from Barrie to Beijing. CCDT performs one of Canada’s most diverse repertoires by leading international choreographers, from timeless revivals to cutting-edge premieres. Since 2000 the company’s Ontario Arts Access outreach initiative has introduced 200,000 young people to contemporary dance, from Windsor and Lion’s Head to Kapuskasing and Kenora and annually sponsors 3,000 admissions and 180 workshops for high needs schools. Hailed by Toronto’s Globe and Mail as “a national treasure”, CCDT represented Canada to critical acclaim at the Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival in Glasgow.  The company also performed José Limón’s iconic The Winged at the Limón International Dance Festival at New York’s storied Joyce Theater in celebration of their 70th anniversary. Other presentation highlights include appearances at Toronto’s Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra Theatres, tours to Singapore, Malaysia and China, and five invitations to the Canada Dance Festival in Ottawa.

CCDT can take its place among the ranks of Toronto’s top dance companies. – Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail
