2017/18 School Calendar

Financial Aid

We want every child to have the chance to dance!

For the 2017/18 school year, the application deadline was September 26 to receive any assistance for the entire year ending in May 2018. The next financial aid for the school year will be available will be in September of 2018. 

One of our goals at Dancers’ Workshop is to make this possible, regardless of financial situation. Individuals are responsible for a 20% payment of the tuition cost upon registration. Applicants will be considered for partial or full assistance for the remaining tuition. Financial assistance is based solely on financial need. Dancers’ Workshop cannot meet the full need of all applicants.

Complete all requested information and attach a copy of your most recently filed US Federal Tax Return (1040). Please turn in a completed application with your registration form, your US Federal Tax return, and the 20% payment to the Dancers’ Workshop office by September 2017 (inquire for specific date). An incomplete application may cause delays or jeopardize your opportunity for financial assistance. All applicants will be notified by mail no later than October 2017 (inquire for specific date) with the amount of financial assistance for tuition.

Afterschool at Dancers’ Workshop

Help keep Dancers’ Workshop safe, clean and fun! DW is a place for:
- Learning
- Dancing
- Creativity
- Fun

Make a plan with your child regarding afterschool at Dancers’ Workshop:
- How to behave appropriately
- How to spend their time
- How to contact you

Parents will be asked to pick up children who are behaving in an unsafe, disruptive or disrespectful manner. In this case:
- You must be able to pick up your child within 15 minutes of contact from DW staff.
You must have a safe location where your child can go if you cannot pick them up right away.

Dancers’ Workshop does NOT provide:
- Supervision after school - before or after scheduled dance classes.

Dancers’ Workshop expects each student to:
- Arrive on time for class and be in dress code
- Tidy up after themselves in the dressing room and restroom
- Be an example of good behavior to their peers
