The School of Toronto Dance Theatre is a national leader in performing arts training. Established in 1968, we continue to serve as the foundation and inspiration for generations of dancers. Our goal is to provide the most compelling, challenging, and comprehensive training for our students, enabling them to succeed as artists.

Thanks to the School I reconnected to the initial reason I wanted to be an artist. I remembered that my goal is to be able to express in as many ways as I can. Not only be able to do impressive moves, but to be able to move people. – Mateo Galindo Torres, 2013 graduate

For this to be possible, we need your help. Donations support all of our programs and activities, including training these talented young dancers, delivering outreach projects with local schools through our pedagogy program, and engaging talented faculty, guest artists, and choreographers who contribute to the larger cultural fabric of Canada. With your support, we will continue to invest in the artistic potential of youth.
