Kinder/Youth Program Policies, Terms, and Conditions
As a student and/or parent at Dancers’ Workshop, you agree to the Articles described below.
Article I. Session Structure
The school year is divided into two 16-week Semesters and one 8-week Summer Session. The 16-week sessions take into account Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks as well as other National Holidays. Please make a note of the School Calendar posted on our website and available at the DW Front Desk. Dancers’ Workshop reserves the right to cancel classes to accommodate the Winter Production and Progress Performances.
Article II. Registration
Semester 1 registration begins August 1st. Students enrolled in Semester 1 are not automatically enrolled in Semester 2. Parents must contact the Front Desk at Dancers’ Workshop or go online to re-enroll. Classes will be filled on a first come/first serve basis. Once classes reach maximum enrollment, a wait list will be formed (again on a first come/first serve basis). When the wait list reaches 5 or more students, every effort will be made to form a new class. Conversely, classes with less than 5 students are subject to be cancelled. In order to make the Winter Production possible, Dancers’ Workshop assesses an $85.00 fee per student to cover the costs of the Center Theatre, costumes, and staffing. Please be prepared for these additional fees in addition to the cost of each class. Winter Production fees are due at the time of audition. Upon registration, parents agree to accept all responsibility for class payments and fees and for monitoring and paying their accounts online, by phone at (307) 733-6398, or in person at Dancers’ Workshop, 240 South Glenwood, 2nd Floor, Jackson, WY 83001 between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm.
Article III. Payment Due Dates
Tuition fees are due at the time of registration. Parents may request a payment plan at the time of registration. If there is an issue with making payment, please contact the Front Desk.
Article IV. Overdue Accounts
Overdue accounts will result in a one-time $20 fee. Students with accounts more than 1 month overdue will be dropped from the class, unless prior arrangements have been made. Account balances must have a $0 balance in order to enroll in the following school year.
Article V. Financial Assistance
Dancers’ Workshop offers financial assistance on a “need” basis and are available to students intending to enroll in both Fall and Spring Semesters. Applications are due during the Fall Semester and are available online or through the Front Desk. Your financial responsibility upon enrollment is 20% down. Dancers’ Workshop’s partial to full financial assistance will be applied to the remaining half of Semester 1 and all of Semester 2. Once Financial Aid is applied for the semester, if there is any balance remaining the parent may request a payment plan.
Article VI. Placement
Students who have previously taken classes at the Intermediate level or higher must audition to be placed into the appropriate class for the coming year. Class assignments are determined by evaluation of the School Director and teaching faculty. Evaluations are based on the student’s performance at the audition as well as recommendations from the previous year’s teacher(s). A student may only change to a higher or lower level during the year if the School Director agrees the change is in the student’s best interest.
Article VII. Refunds
Class tuition is non-refundable for students who drop a class, except in the event of a medical emergency, in which case documentation is required. As payment is due in full at the time of registration, parents on a payment plan must continue to make payments if their student drops out of class for a non-medical reason. Dancers’ Workshop will apply an account credit for the dropped sessions that is available for future use for up to two years.
Article VIII. Drop-Ins
As long as the class is not full, we allow drop-ins for all classes. The drop-in fee is $20. Students must meet the age requirements to participate and have permission from the teacher and/or School Director.
Article IX. Missed Classes
For students who miss a class due to personal reasons, every effort will be made for them to attend a class of the same or appropriate level that is currently running on a different day of the week. Please contact the School Director to arrange the make-up class. No refunds will be given if a spot in another class is unavailable and the student was absent due to personal reasons. Refunds will only be given if a student’s class is cancelled due to Dancers’ Workshop’s scheduling needs (and not posted on annual school calendar).
Article X. Substitute Teachers
Dancers’ Workshop reserves the right to provide a qualified substitute teacher for all classes.
Article XI. Parent Observation
Classes have a closed-door policy to foster growth in class. One Parent Observation Class is offered during each Semester. You may watch classes outside the window of our studios. You may also call the School Director to arrange a formal in-class observation.
Article XII. Dress Code and Etiquette
Dancers’ Workshop has documented rules of etiquette as well as a dress code that can be reviewed online or obtained from the Front Desk. Upon registration, parents and students understand that they are a part of the DW family, which includes abiding by these rules and dress codes for a safe and enriching experience.
Article XIII. School Supplies
All students are asked to provide one pack of hair ties and one pack of hair pins to be used throughout the semester. This is to help the student be prepared for class in the event she forgets these supplies. Student’s may bring a pack of each or pay $5 to go towards the purchase of these supplies.

Workshops are a fixed fee for a fixed period of time (generally 3 to 6 week sessions). See online pricing or stop by the Front Desk for a printed version. Upon registration for a workshop, payment is due for the full session, and there are no refunds unless cancelled at least 14 days before the workshop begins. Due to the progressive learning nature of our workshops, drop-ins can be a higher fee rather than pro-rated and only permitted with the instructor's approval.
