Our tours are made possible by a grant from the Ontario Arts Council's Ontario Touring Program. The CCDT Company of dancers performs for thousands of students in the Winter and again in the Spring. Both programs feature repertoire selected from the work of over 35 international choreographers.
Performances, including a Q&A session, last about 60 minutes and are animated by CCDT Artistic Director, Deborah Lundmark who introduces each piece with a brief description and explanation of its history.
The dancers were a joy to watch in that they successfully combined technique, artistry, and musicality in each of the four dances.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the perfromances...they were pleased and inspired. We look forward to future performances.
Frank Oke P.S. Teacher -- Grade 7 - 10 students
All I have to say is FANTASTIC! I was so moved and intrigued with the talent that came off the stage. It was brilliant. We need to get more and more people to come and see the exceptional and wonderful works of art that came from these performers and choreographers.
