2020 Timetable – studio classes are back!

The ACT Government has given the go-ahead in the Canberra Recovery Plan and we are required to have some new procedures to keep everyone happy and safe. CDT has a Covid-19 Safety Plan in common with all returning businesses. A copy can be downloaded here.

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 – not any more in 2020!

CDT was to have followed a two-semester pattern, but in 2020 we will not take a winter break. Keep doing class all the way through to Saturday 20 December. House dance party for Christmas when we celebrate our dancers and their classes!

If you attend a dance class provided by someone who hires the studio, you will need to pay their fees directly to them.
