Guelph Youth Dance Accessibility
Guelph Youth Dance (GYD) is committed to providing services that are accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. Care and consideration has been taken in planning our school to ensure wherever possible that:

  • Our services are provided in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities.
  • Our services for people with disabilities are integrated with our general programming, allowing everyone an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from our services.

Should you have any questions or comments regarding accessibility at GYD please call 519-803-8829 or email guelphyouthdance@gmail.com or write us at:


Every reasonable effort is made to ensure that all studios and venues we use are fully accessible to people with disabilities. As this is not always possible, Guelph Youth Dance will make information about venue accessibility explicit in our communication materials. Our studios are fully accessible with an elevator off the back entrance and restrooms with an accessible sink on the second floor. As the door at the back is kept locked, we will need to be notified in advance should you wish to use this entrance.


Guelph Youth Dance is committed to meeting the communication needs of people with disabilities. When asked, we will provide information and communication materials in accessible formats or with communication supports.
Service Animals

We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.

Support Person(s)

A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person is welcome to have that person accompany them free of charge at Guelph Youth Dance events.

Notice of Temporary Disruption to Accessible Services

In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to accessible events or services, GYD will notify customers promptly. This notice will be posted on our website and at the venue and will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.

Modifications to This or Other Policies

Any policy of GYD that does not respect and promote the dignity and independence of people with disabilities will be modified or removed.

Staff Training

GYD will provide training to employees, volunteers, and others who deal with the public or other third parties on our behalf.
