The School of Toronto Dance Theatre is located in the heart of historic Cabbagetown, a neighbourhood located on the east side of downtown Toronto.
Surrounded by “the largest continuous area of preserved Victorian housing in North America,” the School itself is situated in a heritage-designated renovated church – a building which is also home to Toronto Dance Theatre (TDT) and the Winchester Street Theatre.
The building’s facilities include four studios (one of which is a 115-seat theatre), dressing rooms, showers, sauna, wardrobe, and the administrative offices for both the School and TDT.
Some classes and rehearsals are held in the studios of Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre which is within close walking distance of the School.
