FROM WHERE? Ottawa & Gatineau
Who we're looking for?: BIPOC girls (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) but not limited to, and must have some* Hip Hop or Street Dance experience or can adapt quickly
Why FOCUS ON BIPOC kids?: We want to provide an environment that is a reflection of us - We are Filipino and Afro-Cuban immigrants speaking from a BIPOC experience. If this consideration does not sit well with you, perhaps this group may not be well suited from your daughter and we respect that opinion. If this type of environment sparks interest, please inquire today!
Qualities we look for: Young girls who are timely, responsible, hard working, willing to step outside of their comfort zone and with some some dance experience (previous dance studio, gymnastics, community grop etc)
FIRST 3 MONTHS PAYMENT: You pay intro 3 months of Street Dance training and will be given many performance opportunities
AMOUNT: $1,025 CAD + HST (full amount or can be paid in two segments)
AFTER 3 MONTHS: After the initial 3 month period, if Alea & Arnaldo feels a continuation with the group would be appropriate for your daughter (they felt welcomed, they progressed well, they were good students, the other girls get along with them), we will welcome them to stay with North Moovment for Fall 2023 onwards
AFTER 3 MONTH FEE: The yearly fee post-3 month training will be $200 CAD flat to assist with studio space rentals and not payment to Alea and Arnaldo as the intention is truly to uplift the new generation of young girls in the Street Dance community
Where are you performing? Festivals, sporting events, community gatherings, dance battles, and more throughout Ottawa in the Summer and Fall 2023. Our goal is to have this performance group out in the city doing shows when the main Moov Ottawa team cannot.

We can accept 50% of your payment upfront and the remaining 50% 1 month after.
what's the difference between this group and competitive dance studio troupes?
We provide a space that encourages growth as a dancer, an educated artist and a young women in Street Dance, which competitive Dance troupes do not. They do competitions like "Shine" etc, which we participate in Street Dance battles. We also offer Street Dance training and performance opportunities year round. Our environment is a major push out of their comfort zone, and will challenge each girl, but we support them during the journey and ensure they feel welcomed and valued in our space!
what dance steps am i learning?
We teach you the fundementals and foundations of Hip Hop, House, Breaking & sometimes Waacking. We also teach you the dance moves from each era - 80's, 90's, & 2000's and also the cultural history behind it.
what if MY DAUGHTER doES NOT want to or cannot continue after a few weeks?
Full transparency, we cannot offer refunds. Life happens sometimes, but this is not just a fun thing we do, this is a very spesific group of youth we are investing in. Please ensure this is a good time for your daughter t
what do you do to help prevent injury?
We give shoe suggestions, do lots of workouts and conditioning, along with on-the-spot adjustments. But, you are overall responsible for your body and need to be mindful of your limits. We push, but you need to learn what feels like a push, and what feels dangerous.
what is different between north moovment training and a dance class?
We invest a lot of time in structuring our training towards pushing your limits, reaching mental, emotional and physical goals, building educated dancers, devoting 1:1 time for each student, providing in & out of studio mentorship and support, and providing the above-and-beyond approach to dance education. Our dance classes are 1 hour and you don't hear from us after that. Our dance classes don't have the physical push either. We are training in North Moovment, not just doing Zumba. Similarly, we provide tons of performance opportunities to our youth that is very rare for the Ottawa dance community.
how do i register my daughter?
We are not accepting "registrations", but rather "inquiries". Please contact us today to book a Zoom call with your and your daughter so we can chat further if we feel this is a good fit for them/us.
