Attendance and Tardiness:

Attending class is important for learning technique and choreography. Please call the studio or let the instructor know if you are going be late or miss a class. Repeated absences and tardiness are disruptive to the class. If you must leave the class early, please let the instructor know.

Class Placement:

What class is best for my child? We suggest early registration for best class placement. Classes close when full. Maximum students varies by class. Class placement is at the discretion of Westbrook Dance Academy. We take many factors into consideration. Age and experience are the initial guide for class placement. As classes begin, and we have a chance to assess ability levels, students may be asked to switch classes based on their skill level. If you are unsure about classes, we suggest trying a class.


Students should not arrive more than 15 minutes before class or be picked up later than 15 minutes after class.
Names should be clearly marked in all dance shoes and other equipment. Westbrook Dance Academy is not responsible for personal belongings.
No food, gum, candy or drinks (except bottled water) is allowed in the dance room.
