REPERTOIRE

REPERTOIRE

To date, CCDT has an extensive repertoire of over 100 works from a host of renowned Canadian and international choreographers. We produce three annual programs:

 

  • Fall Home Season: WinterSong - dances for a sacred season 

  • Youth Programming Tour: Teasing Gravity (Spring 2019)

  • Spring Home Season: Light Years (May 2019)

Our Home Seasons are annual productions each December and May, presented by Harbourfront Centre at Toronto's prestigious Fleck Dance Theatre. Our Youth Programming is presented annually in Toronto each spring, in addition to touring throughout Ontario (and beyond). View our calendar for this season's performances.

While our Youth Programming works have been commissioned specially for young audiences, a much wider selection of CCDT dances is appropriate for youth, student, and family performances (notably, most of our WinterSong repertoire).

 

Nearly all of CCDT's repertoire is available for touring. Contact us for more information.

See below for a selection of our recently active repertoire.
