The School of Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre was founded in 1983 by Artistic Director, Deborah Lundmark, to provide a creative home for young bodies, minds, and spirits. Ms. Lundmark’s over thirty years of experience guiding young dancers from first steps to stage premieres has helped make the School of Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre one of Canada’s leading dance training centres. 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. Encouraging students from the recreational to the pre-professional level, the School’s objective is to foster not only the “thinking dancer” but also the self-directed and physically confident young person. Our pre-professional program incorporates our resident Company’s vision of strong ballet and modern training, leading to a well-rounded dancer able to perform the work of diverse choreographers, and to succeed in a wide range of post secondary training opportunities. Full-time students considering entry into performing arts schools and post-secondary training are assured of receiving precisely the required preparation.
The School of CCDT offers dance classes of all kinds for children, pre-professional dance classes and adult contemporary and modern dance classes. We also offer children and youth summer programs for all different levels.
