Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
The School of Toronto Dance Theatre was established in 1968, and is passionately committed to training and education in the art of contemporary dance. We provide inspiring training in creative movement and dance to people of all ages. For more than 50 years, the School has been training dancers who have been inspired by the depth of passion and the physical power of the human body in motion. Dance is an art form of kinetic expression, which both represents and reflects back to us our understanding of the world through the elements of time, space, energy, musicality, and dynamics. It can provoke joy and wonder, sadness and despair, humour and delight, and deep feelings of passion and spiritual awareness. As an art form it keeps us profoundly in touch with others, with our environment, and with ourselves.


Contemporary Dance: Young dancers' program, "We Dance" for students who are differently abled, as well as a professional training program. Adult recreational program also offered.

Young Dancers at Home

The School of Toronto Dance Theatre is offering a new extended version of their virtual Young Dancers' ProgramYoung Dancers at Home is a program consisting of two sessions per month, which includes a live-streamed video to dance along with, and a LIVE Zoom class with our instructors.

These sessions are designed for a wide range of ages (3-17). During the live-streamed videos, students will have the opportunity to ask instructors questions and offer comments via live chat. During our LIVE Zoom classes, dancers will be led by one of our instructors, through movement that is based on the previous live-streamed video. Students will be able to see their instructors, and if they wish, they can also be seen by them!

Creativity, spontaneity, musicality, and learning new techniques are at the heart of each offering. All classes will also include improvisational curiosities and playfulness inspired by wonders found in the natural world, and close at hand.
