CCDT turns on the switch for SolarDance

Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre (CCDT, formerly Canadian Children's Dance Theatre) is bringing in the green by going green. The recently renamed company got started on a bright idea it calls SolarDance arts education. Ninety-six solar panels, spanning 6,000 square feet of the studio’s rooftop, will generate enough energy to raise $15,000 for CCDT annually. The company says the new income will finance year-round dance scholarships for twenty neighbourhood children. CCDT is located in Cabbagetown, sandwiched between some of Toronto's wealthiest and poorest citizens.
