For the 2016/17 school year, the application deadline was September 19 to receive any assistance for the entire year ending in May 2017. The next financial aid available will be in September of 2017.
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.
