Teasing Gravity -

dances for the young and fearless

Due to the ongoing pandemic, CCDT's Teasing Gravity 2020 Tour has been cancelled.

Performances at all seven venues across Ontario (Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Dryden, Deep River, Kirkland Lake, Milton, and Toronto) have been either cancelled or postponed until further notice.

 

We now invite you to discover Teasing Gravity online this season.
