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.


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.

 It will be posted two hours before the days' classes are scheduled to start.


Peek Weeks:

Parents and relatives are invited to watch class in October and March.

Dates will be posted on FaceBook


No food or gum in the dance studio. Label all shoes.

End of Season Performance:

Dance is a performing art. All students are encouraged to participate in the annual recital held on Sunday, afternoon May 20. 

This is a positive, no-stress experience for the dancers and their parents.
