Originally called the Neo Dance Theatre, the New Dance Theatre (NDT) was a modern dance performance group that was based in Toronto from 1949 to 1955. The group also operated a school offering modern, ballet, and folk dance classes taught by Ivy Krehm, Cynthia Barrett, Nancy Lima Dent, and Betty Oliphant. The company presented modern dance choreographic works that were socially and politically aware. The group disbanded after Nancy Lima Dent’s departure in 1955.
