overview & tuition

Westport’s Academy of Dance uses a system of levels in placing students within each class. Students are placed based on age and years of dance experience, as well as level of technique shown, size, musicality, coordination, and their ability to focus and accept corrections in class. Therefore, each class will meet the needs of the majority.

It is important for students and their parents to understand that dancers may not change levels every year. At the end of the year, based on teachers evaluations, student placements are determined. It is our sincere intent to place each student in a class level which will provide the most positive learning experience.
