Why CYDT

 

WHY THE CHILDREN YOUTH AND DANCE THEATRE? WE'RE A COMMUNITY STUDIO!

 

Founded in 1998 we have seen many dance schools and programs come and go. Yet, well over two decades later, we thrive. That’s because CYDT truly is a community-based dance studio, and we excel at what we do!

 

Here at the Children Youth and Dance Theatre, we inspire excellence and produce a caliber of technically skilled young dancers, with artistic levels that are simply exemplary.

 

But even more than this, CYDT affords our young men and women more than the power of dance. Here at CYDT, we instill the power of:

 

  • Community: Supporting our community

 

  • Self-esteem: Love, pride & belief in oneself

 

  • Heritage: The power of our culture and our heritage

 

  • Dedication: Working toward a single goal

 

  • Drive: The determination to succeed

 

  • Achievement: Celebrating the joy when they do

 

 

 

We're so proud of our students who have won so many awards over the years.

TRADITIONAL & UNIQUE DANCE GENRES

 

We offer dance classes and programs for our kids, as young as 3 years old.

 

We offer a wide range of dance classes that include traditional dance styles and genres. But our program also offers a twist. CYDT pays homage to our strong Caribbean heritage by incorporating other (unique) dance classes and genres.

 

The genres of dance we teach include:

OUR FEES

 

Because CYDT operates as a registered charity, we are pleased that we are able to make our dance classes and programs more widely available by offerIng our students and members rates that are significantly lower than typical rates of other for-profit dance studios.

AWARDS AND ACCOLADES

 

Our students proudly represent Toronto in Canadian competitions, and participate in events, festivals and competitions far and wide.
