BALLET AND CONTEMPORARY DANCE LESSONS TORONTO
School of Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre (School of CCDT)
…where aspiring young dancers come to grow.
Founded in 1983 to provide a creative home for young bodies, minds and spirits. One of Canada’s foremost dance centres, we specialize in Ballet and Contemporary training in addition to offering fun and engaging classes like Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, and Creative Movement, always with a live accompanist and qualified instructors. Summer dance programs, student teacher internships and classes for adults are also available.
Our training follows the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus in Ballet where our dance classes range from Pre-Primary for dancers ages 5 and older continuing on through each of the Graded Levels of Ballet into professional-level instruction where dancers can choose to pursue teacher’s certification. Ballet examinations are offered annually in our studios with the examining faculty of the Royal Academy of Dance, England. The RAD method is the oldest and most internationally recognized syllabus that allows dancers to build on steps and advance to professional levels and is the most all-encompassing form of ballet training for any aspiring dancer.
Our experienced Limón Modern instructors are formally trained in this style of dance which emphasizes the natural rhythms of fall and recovery, a conscious use of breath, and the interplay between weight and weightlessness. This classical form of Modern moves away from the dancer’s feet and into their torso and upper body. The School of CCDT believes the strongest dancers develop from a combination of RAD and Limón training.
The School of CCDT values dance as a creative art form, not as a competitive sport.
