Bringing Creativity, Artistry, and Professional Performance Experience to Young Dancers


Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre is a repertory company founded in 1980 for emerging artists under 19 years of age by Artistic Director, Deborah Lundmark, and Managing Director, Michael deConinck Smith.

Company members and audiences alike enjoy one of Canada’s largest and most diverse repertoires including creations by such dance luminaries as David Earle, Carol Anderson, Danny Grossman, Margie Gillis, Peggy Baker, Robert Glumbek, and Peter Chin and, most recently, Ofilio Sinbadinho, Colin Connor, Jennifer Archibald, Kevin Wynn, Sylvie Bouchard, Apolonia Velasquez, and Hanna Kiel. 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. 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.  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.
