2020 Timetable – studio classes suspended

CDT has ZOOM classes for GOLD, Hilal Dance, Senior Ballet and CDTeens. Send us an email to find out how to join in canberradancetheatre@gmail.com

All CDT dance classes are suitable for ages 16+. All CDT dance classes follow a plan for each semester, so regular attendance will give you the best result.

CDT does not offer children’s dance classes, except CDTeens (12 to 22 years) dance classes which are suitable for teens with extra needs.

New dancers

Unsure of which class you’d like to take? Pay for the first one then try them all for a whole week! See the admin staff about 10 to 15 minutes before class to sign up then show the receipt for any other class for the following week. Ask our lovely admins for further details. And… in addition to a physical workout, dance is an excellent exercise in mental well-being. Check out our FAQs and Notes for First-Timers.

CDT is a member of Ausdance ACT and follows the Australian Guidelines for Teaching Dance, as published by Ausdance National, and the Code of Ethics for Dance Teachers. All classes have warm-ups and cool-downs.

We encourage feedback about classes and teachers directly to the office staff or to office.canberradancetheatre@gmail.com. Have a compliment or a gripe? Let the office staff know quickly so we can pass it on.

Two Semesters

Monday 2 February to Sunday 5 July; Monday 21 July to Saturday 20 December. Winter holiday dance classes and workshops are scheduled in the winter break. And we have a house dance party at the end of each semester when we celebrate our dancers and their classes!
