This company of young dancers under the directorship of Deborah Lundmark exudes energy, artistry and creativity in every performance. Their show Teasing Gravity is a thrilling adventure in movement that features dances by some of Canada’s leading choreographers.
A leading touring company, CCDT has introduced over 300,000 young people to dance through its Ontario Arts Access program, and won the Toronto Arts Foundation’s prestigious Arts for Youth Award for its development of young artists and young audiences.
Presentation highlights include appearances at Toronto’s Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra Theatres for the Creative Trust and Dancers for Life Galas and five invitations to the Canada Dance Festival in Ottawa.
Internationally, the Company represented Canada to critical acclaim at the inaugural Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival in Glasgow, Scotland and has toured Singapore, Malaysia, and China. Culminating a three-decade relationship with the José Limón Dance Company, CCDT performed to standing ovations at New York City’s storied Joyce Theater as part of its sister company’s historic 70th anniversary International Dance Festival.
THEOP was disappointed to have to cancel this show due to COVID 19. Touring a large troupe has many challenges but you can look forward to their energy and dynamism in our 2022/23 season!
