...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.

Friday, May 22 & Saturday, May 23


Fleck Dance Theatre, Toronto

Celebrating CCDT's 40th anniversary, Gravity's Edge features world premieres by globally-renowned choreographer Gioconda Barbuto and Artistic Director Deborah Lundmark, alongside a stunning program of contemporary repertoire by acclaimed choreographers Colin Connor (José Limón Dance Company), Jennifer Archibald (Arch Dance Company) and Nicole Caruana (UANA Dans).


A new installation work directed by Colleen Snell (Frog In Hand) will animate the theatre lobbies, inspired by and commemorating Lundmark's rich choreographic history with her 40-year-old company.


We are proud to present a brand new series of promotional videos about our company's history, mandate, productions, artists, and more. We are excited to launch this project on the eve of CCDT's 40th Anniversary, and we hope you feel inspired by watching and compelled to share our story.
