How Do I Register?

  1. Check your eligibility here (all students are eligible).
  2. Fill out the online waiver (go to here and find the Ballroom waiver) and save the confirmation (you'll need it when you register with the club). Do NOT register online on the Athletics's website. Registration is only done in-person before classes.
  3. Choose your classes - we offer separate ballroom and Latin classes at different levels. Check out our classes page for our current offerings and for level descriptions
  4. Come to either the demonstration session, a practice session, or 15 minutes before the first class to register. You will need your completed waiver confirmation (on phone is acceptable), Watcard and payment (cash or cheque). Classes have an enrollment cap so register early to ensure  you get into your desired class. 

Refund Policy

Class Cancellation
UWBDC is conducted by both local and out-of-area instructors and we need to provide instructors and participants appropriate notice if a program  will be cancelled. The decision to hold or cancel a course is based on  registration to ensure we have the appropriate numbers to covers our costs. All contact will be via email and Facebook. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure UWBDC has your current email and update us if necessary OR that you check our Facebook group regularly.  

  • If UWBDC is cancelling a program, you will be contacted by email and have two weeks from the date the email was sent to come to us  for a refund.
  • Refunds are forfeited if not picked up within the two week time frame.
  • Any programs cancelled by UWBDC will be issued a full refund.
  • All refunds and transfers must take place within the current term.

No refund after registration
To complete registration, you need to fill our registration form and  campus rec waiver with a valid watcard and fee. Once you finished registration, your spot is guaranteed, no refunds are issued. Please make sure you are available for lessons before sign up.  

Make-up Lessons
On rare occasions lessons have to be cancelled due to unforeseen  circumstances such as weather or instructor illness. We will make every  attempt to reschedule all missed lessons, however no refunds will be  given if attempts to re-schedule are unsuccessful. Make-up lessons due to participant illness or personal circumstances will not be available.  If your personal circumstances do not permit you to attend your lesson on a particular week or time, or the make-up time, you can not attend  another time or lesson.  

Medical Exceptions
A Pro-rated refund will be issued only for medical reasons with a doctor's certificate. Pro-rated refunds will be issued from the date on the doctor's note. All refunds must be claimed within the same term as the registered class or will be forfeited.  

Membership Fee
The $5 club membership fee is non-refundable under any circumstances.
