Registration

How do I register?

Registration can be completed online through our website via our Amilia app. If you are an existing client, simply login into the Amilia portal and browse our programs and classes. If you are new to our system, creating an account is easy! If you require assistance, an administrator can help you in person, or via phone or email.

Can I register now?

Registration is open at any time! Base tuition starts at $800 (SUBJECT TO CHANGE), which will include tuition from September to June, a $50 recital costume deposit, and professional videography of the recital performance. An additional $50 membership fee is mandatory upon registration. Tuition is prorated per week from the start date, so you do not pay the full $800 if you register later in the year.

Do I have to commit to the year?

We hope your child will continue to June to be able to participate in our year-end recital performance! Since we understand that other obligations can arise, our season is divided into three Terms. Each Term is roughly 3 months, and allows for three payment installments. In the event of a withdrawal, you must email us a formal withdrawal request 14 days before the next Term start date, and we will cancel future payments. No refunds are issued when a Term has already begun; only a credit will be applied, and your account is subject to a $25.00 administrative fee.

I’m not sure if the current class my child is enrolled in is the right class level.

Our teachers pay special attention to each dancer in class and would be delighted to provide feedback on your child’s progress in class, and the curriculum that is being taught. Based on this feedback, you and your child can make a decision to switch classes.

Dress Code

What should my child wear to class?

Details about our dress code can be found on our website! Each class has a uniform and hair requirement. For example, Jazz and Acro Dance class will require black leotards and black shorts, with hair in a neat ponytail. Ballet classes will require their graded level’s leotard, tights, and a classical bun.

Where do I purchase the dance uniform?

We have inventory in the studio, and an administrator will be happy to help with any fittings or inquiries you have. We have listed some vendors as a recommendation to purchase from, such as DanceShoppe, Toronto Dancewear Centre, and Second Skin Fashions.

Can I watch my child dance?

Depending on which studio your child’s class is in, our facility has either a window into the studio for viewing or a camera that is broadcasted to a monitor in the lobby.

How many students are in a class?

To ensure quality of instruction, learning experience, and depending on the class age and certain studio capacities, classes may have a limit of 9-10 students per class. For younger classes (ages 3-7) and classes with over 10 students, teachers may have a teaching assistant.

Policies and Fees

Can I have a trial for my child to see if they like a class first?

We offer paid drop-ins for $20.00 + HST. This allows your child to attend one class to gauge their interest before committing to registration. Set up a drop-in with us by emailing info@cdmdance.com.

What are additional costs that are associated with dance?

Aside from tuition, examples of additional costs would be dance attire (leotards, tights, shoes etc.), hair accessories (hairnets, pins, etc.), examination fees (RAD examinations, Acrobatic Arts examinations), ticket fees (for recital), and other fees (photo package purchases, recital costume balances).

Do you have any discounts?

We offer tiered discounts, so the more your child dances, the more you save! You will receive 5% off your child’s second class, and 10% off the third and fourth classes. These discounts apply per child. Sibling discounts are ONLY applied to the membership fee.

What are your payment options?

Credit card payments are subject to a 2.75% transaction fee upon checkout. For no additional fees, we accept eChecks, post dated cheques, e-transfers, and cash payments.

It’s our first time at your studio. Can we book a tour?

Of course! Studio tours must be scheduled in advance and can be booked through info@cdmdance.com. Drop-ins are welcome on the weekdays provided they are within office hours. We do not schedule tours on Saturdays as it is our busiest day!

General

I’m looking for more information on your dance classes.

Our dance classes are organized into age-specific programs. Starting with your child’s age, you can browse categories for a variety of dance styles that we offer, such as Ballet, Jazz, Acro Dance, Hip-Hop, and more! Each program has a description of the class and style, for your information. One of our administrators would be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

Do you have changing rooms?

Yes, changing rooms are connected to our bathrooms. If possible, it is recommended that your child come dressed in uniform and to leave their bags and coats in the dressing rooms. Please do not leave any valuables in the dressing rooms!

Where can we leave our shoes and coats?

There are cabinets at the base of the steps for shoes and to hang coats. Especially as the weather gets colder, we do not permit outdoor shoes in our lobby.

Can parents wait in the lobby?

Our lobby is open to the general public, though we encourage parents to drop off their child(ren) to avoid congestion. The plaza is a great place to walk around, with the Toronto Library near Galati and a park across the street!

My child has a break in between their classes. Can they wait in the lobby?

We have a kitchen equipped with a sink and microwave for your convenience. There is also a designated eating area with tables and chairs where students are able to eat their snacks and meals in between classes. Students are also allowed to wait in the lobby after their classes for pick-up.

Are your facilities wheelchair or stroller accessible?

Our studio is located in the basement and unfortunately does not have an elevator. If you speak with an administrator, we can arrange for staff to walk your child up and down the stairs if they require assistance.

Can I come into the class with my 3-4 year old?

The Tots Program and Kinder Program classes are student independent classes. However, if it is their first class, parents may be invited in for support during the first 15 minutes and then may be asked to leave. Our facility has windows and a TV monitor for viewing. If you are interested in parent and child classes, feel free to inquire about our Parent and Tots Program.
