Our Programs

6 & Under


We believe that dance fosters artistry, education and cultural awareness, and of course, fun, all of which are never too early to start!


Our classes for parents & babies, and our young 'uns are a great introduction to the wonderful art form of dance.

CYDT offers a comprehensive roster of dance classes and programs that is designed to support a wide range of the children and youth, parents and caregivers within our community. We even partner with schools to offer in-school programming.

Recreational Classes


CYDT offers a wide range of dance classes for children and youths.


We offer the traditional dance genres as well as additional genres inspired by Caribbean and African culture.




The Pre-Company dance program is designed to prepare dancers for entry into the Company program. It is also an alternative option for students who cannot commit to the full Company requisites.


For dancers accepted into Pre-Company there are:


  • High Bars: Are expected to attend 6 hours of classes/week (minimum)


  • Opportunities: Participate in Workshops with professional artists


  • Experiences: Dancers perform both locally and internationally


Dance Company


The Dance Company is the performing core of CYDT.


Entrance and participation is for students aged 8-16 years and is by auditions, invitation or recommendation by a class instructor.


The objective of this program is to provide experiential opportunities for those with strong interests in pursuing arts at the Secondary, Tertiary and/or professional level.


Summer Camps


Whether your child simply enjoys arts & crafts, is just a beginner or a skilled dancer, or wants to make new friends, they will thoroughly enjoy our Summer Arts Camp program! Give your child the opportunity to discover their inner dancer - or hone their already developed skills - over an exciting week of fun! Our expert team of enthusiastic Instructors will engage campers in the world of art, music and dance.


From as little as $50 for a week*, and free before and after care, the CYDT Summer Camp is the most fun and best value around.


*Based on a full 3-week camp sign-up.


For just $10 our Dance Workshops and are a great introduction to the CYDT Studio! (And did we mention our Workshops include lunch?!)


Our Dance Workshops center around various themes and feature special guest dancers.


Dance Workshops are for anyone from 7 years of age, up to 100! That’s right, enroll the kids, and parents, join us to experience the fun with your little ones!


PA Day Camps


COMING IN 2018/19!


Coming soon, CYDT will be taking its winning Summer Arts Camp formula, and applying to a one-day format for our very first PA Day Camp!


Campers from 5 to 16 years are invited to come along, meet new friends and enjoy an artistic day of music and exposure to different genres of dance.

Coming soon

In-School Programs

CYDT is proud to be a truly community-based program. Funded by Trillium, we work with local schools to provide in-school after school, lunch or extra-curricular dance programs!


We know that dance, when linked with the (academic) curriculum, has the ability to affect learning in the classroom, acting as a scaffold in the learning process.


Dance can be a particularly important supplement to academic education for students who are reluctant learners as it enhances their critical thinking and positively impacts their self-esteem.
