The School of Toronto Dance Theatre
For over 40 years, The School of Toronto Dance Theatre has been passionately committed to the training and education of young dancers in the art of contemporary dance. We dedicate ourselves to investing in the artistic potential of youth for the development of the art form. Specifically:
The School serves the art form of contemporary dance by providing well-trained and educated dance artists to further developments in the field.
The School supports the professional development of faculty and guest artists so that they may further their artistry and provide excellent and relevant instruction to students.
The School serves as advocates for dance and for education in the arts within the dance community and to the public-at-large.
Philosophically, training emphasizes the whole dancer -- body, mind, and spirit -- since excellent movement training engages the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our humanity. The School of Toronto Dance Theatre affirms its commitment to the education of all aspects of an individual through its strong and varied curriculum and through the provision of excellent role models in its faculty and guest artists.
Through its dedication to excellence in the art form, The School of Toronto Dance Theatre is at the forefront of training in contemporary dance in Canada.
