...where aspiring young artists come to perform

Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre is a repertoire company created to provide dancers under 19 years of age with a professional performance alternative to prevailing competition, examination and recital options. Founded in 1980 by Deborah Lundmark and Michael deConinck Smith, CCDT strives to nurture the highest calibre of versatile dance artists through advanced-level training in Limón Modern and RAD Ballet techniques combined with extensive performance and touring opportunities of a varied modern and contemporary repertoire.

Auditions for Company/Apprentice Programs & SunDance

Each year Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre invites young dancers to audition for SunDance, our annual summer intensive, and the upcoming Company season beginning in September. CCDT dancers come from a variety of training, cultural, and economic backgrounds but all share a passion for the expressive power and range of modern and contemporary dance choreography that is created by leading dance artists on them and for them.
