Who We Are

Move With Grace Dance Studios - Cambridge and Fergus Ontario

Move With Grace was incorporated in April 2004 with a clear vision that we would be different.  A focus group of industry professionals and parents was consulted in the construction of the concept looking to what works well in a typical dance studio and looking to improve on those ideas, but more importantly, what does not work well and how we could create a better dance facility.

Several unique propositions were adopted and Move With Grace was born.

Some key areas of differentiation:

  • Teachers, the process, the class, the student - all can be observed at all times.
  • Children should be treated with respect.  There is no need to motivate using punitive approaches, regardless of how it has traditionally been done.  There is no yelling or isolating students to make a point at our studio.
  • The instruction will be imparted by qualified adult instructor.  All of our teachers will be qualified adults.
  • Not every teacher is good at everything, set the ego aside.  Dance Studios typically have one owner teacher that does just about everything.  There are very few teachers that can truely be considered experts in all forms of dance.  We hire for attitude and specialization.   With 13 staff we have both specialized expertise in all of the areas we teach but also enough redundancy to cover when the main teacher is not available.
  • We will be part of your Childs influence, so we approach the process as a whole experience.  Age appropriate music, costuming, choreography and behaviour is used at all times.
  • Our present facility in Cambridge is 10,000 sqft including a 2500 sqft. wireless internet cafe for the parents.  All of our classes are broadcast onto large screen TV's.  You are welcome to stay!  We have 5 large air conditioned studios with sprung professional dance flooring surface to minimize potential injury.

Our Policies

Enrolment

Enrolment is on a first-come, first-served basis. For full classes, a waiting list will be maintained to accommodate other students if and when space becomes available. Classes are limited in size and students are grouped according to age and ability level. Classes begin in September and end in June with our annual Spring Production. We do allow for a January enrollment which still entitles these students to the Spring production. Registration fee and first payment plan instalment are due at time of enrolment.

Tuition Payments

Payments may be made either by personal check, cash, Debit Card, Visa or Mastercard. Checks should be made payable to Move with Grace Inc. To ensure proper credit, please put your child's name on the check, especially if your child has a different last name than yours.  You may also pay online anytime through your parent portal by credit or debit or by enrolling in automated payment.

Late Fees and Returned Checks

A $25.00 processing fee will be added for all returned checks. The studio reserves the right to discontinue a dancer's classes for non-payment of tuition and fees when necessary.

Past Due: Parents or students who allow their account to go into arrears may forfeit their place in class and in the recital. If a circumstance should arises where a payment will not be made at an agreed time it is incumbent upon the client to inform Move With Grace Inc. immediately to make alternative arrangements. Tuition payments Past Due are subject to a penalty of 2.5% per month. Accounts failing to pay under the terms of our policies and registration contract without previous arrangements, will be subject to collections activities.

Withdrawals

The studio requires written notice to the front desk at least 4 weeks prior to discontinuing classes. You will be responsible for four weeks tuition from the date the studio receives notification prior to October 15th. Withdrawals after October15th are non refundable as the class spot cannot be filled or replaced after that date. Registered students are responsible for the full term tuition past October 15th. For registrants after October 15th, no drop add period exists however if you are leaving for any reason, we would appreciate four weeks written notice. Students are responsible for letting the instructor know if they will not be returning to a class. If a student is not enjoying a class in which they are registered and would like to move to an alternate class spot in a different discipline, we will make every effort to make that transition for you.

Attendance

Our studio requires all students to arrive to class regularly and on time. Please notify the front desk if you will be missing classes for an extended period due to illness or vacation. Tuition refunds will not be made in the case of absences due to illness or vacation.

Tuition Payment

All tuition payments are due by the 5th of each month if a special payment schedule is arranged prior to class start. Post dated cheques are due before the first scheduled class. Payments may be made in three term sections of September, December and March or monthly from September to June but will be subject to a 12% interest adjustment. Payments remain the same each month regardless of attendance, school closures, holidays, etc.
