The School of CCDT
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.
