Becoming a member is easy!
As you enter the Dovercourt House, you will be greeted by one of our Door Fairies. She/he/they will give you a numbered card, which will ensure your entry (we have a capacity of around 100 dancers). Wait in the line-up until one of our Facilitators invites new members to the top of the stairs or the Door Fairy directs you.
You will then be given a brief orientation to The Move, asked to sign the membership form (see below), and be given a membership card. This should not take more than 10 minutes.
If this is your first time coming to The Move, it’s best to arrive before the doors open (7:20pm) so that you have time go through the membership process before the Move starts. After 8pm, we will not accept any new members.
We also ask that you read the Guidelines page to get a better sense of what to expect.
All members of The Move community need to complete and sign a membership form. You can do that when you arrive at The Move, or you can get a head start by downloading, printing, and completing the form below and bringing it with you.
Special Guest List
As a way of supporting inclusivity on our dancefloor, The Move’s Special Guest List allows those in financial need to come to The Move three times over the course of a three month period on a $1 — $10 basis.
To apply, add your name and contact info to the sign up sheet on the Community Table at The Move, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. While we will not ask for proof of financial status, we trust that dancers will apply on a needs-basis, so that the scholarships can go to those who will truly benefit. We will contact you before the quarter for which you are being considered.
You may re-apply for scholarships as often as you need, though priority will be given to those who have not received a Move scholarship before. We offer 15 spots per term.
If you have any questions, or if you know of someone who might like to benefit from this offer, particularly someone not currently attending the Move because of their financial situation, please email email@example.com and we would be happy to help.
The position of ‘Door Fairy’ is an energy exchange opportunity for members who might not be able to attend The Move on a regular basis due to financial constraints and have a desire to give back to the community.
It is also a great way to become more involved and connected with The Move community. The Door Fairy position involves greeting members as they arrive at The Move and handing out numbered cards until we reach capacity. The shift starts at 6:45pm and ends at 8pm and involves working collaboratively with the Door Team. In exchange, Door Fairies get to dance at The Move that evening for free! We ask for a 6 month commitment with at least 2 shifts per 3-month term.
