ALUMNI

Whether they began training at CCDT as a Young Apprentice Program dancer or immediately joined the Company at age 17, our alumni have gone on to make notable accomplishments in the world of professional dance and beyond. Former CCDT members have been accepted to some of the world's top dance conservatories and training programs, many graduating with accolades and honours to propel them into their continued performing careers. Alumni have also gone on to perform with prestigious dance companies and independent choreographers, establish renown as dance educators, and found their own dance companies, collectives, and training practices worldwide.

CCDT dancers have continued their pursuit of movement with programs, companies, and artists including...
