Rules & Policies:

At Commonwealth Dance Academy students are taught dance in a nurturing, fun, and disciplined environment. 

We believe that dance develops self-esteem and confidence as well as grace and poise.

Attendance:

Students benefit from consistent attendance. We expect them to come to class on time, properly dressed for class.
 

Class Placement:

Each student is placed in class according to his/her age, ability, and experience.
 

School Year:

The school year runs from September to May. There are four 8-week terms. Please call the studio for tuition/registration information.
 

Snow Days: 

In case of snow, school may be canceled, but if conditions improve, we may hold classes. 

Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook page.   Or please call 508-668-4764 for a recorded message.
