CDT has a number of performing groups who perform at the six-monthly house parties and at public events. These include:
CDT doesn’t do concerts, eisteddfods or competitions. Twice a year we hold a House Party in the studio where all classes can come together, meet, celebrate what they do and show off to each other. It’s an open event so all are welcome and we put on a great show. Expect to see up to 20 short presentations and performances. June and December each year.
CDT runs major projects when funding allows, and we have a rich creative practice. The 2018 major project was Happiness Is… 40 Years of Canberra Dance Theatre
40TH Anniversary – Happiness Is… 40 Years of Canberra Dance Theatre
It was 40 years ago today… In 1978 Canberra Dance Theatre was born, and in 2018 we celebrated our 40th birthday with a very special project for everyone who wanted to be involved, with three performances at The Street Theatre 12, 13, 14 October 2018. This project was coordinated by Jacqui Simmonds, starting with Emma Saunders’ HAPPINESS IS... creative development.
