Q: Are there refunds for tuition and fees if my child is unable to attend the Summer Intensive?

A: Sorry, there are no refunds.

Q: If I am accepted for the Summer Intensive am I accepted for the School Year?

A: No.  School Year acceptance is separate from summer.  audition@therockschool.org has more information on auditioning for school year programs.  You can audition for both school year and summer at the same time but you need to specify that you are interested in school year.

Q: Can I register for School Year once the session has begun? 

A: Yes.  We recommend students wait until the start of a new quarter to avoid paying for classes that have already taken place.  Quarters are approximately 8-9 weeks in length.  (Side note- we may re-name "Quarter" as people get very confused that we are referring to 1/4 of the school year and not 1/4 of the calendar year).  We typically discourage people from registering for/after Quarter 4 since we are getting so close to the end of the year by then.  Students who sign up this late may not have as positive of an experience since most of the students have been in the class since September.  They are also not eligible to participate in Showcase.

Q: Are there scholarships available? 

A: The School does have a few scholarships and discounts.  Scholarships and discounts may not be combined.
Learn more here.

Q: When is the best time to register my dancer for the Children's Program? 

A: You may enroll your dancer anytime, we recommend registering early rather than later to get your first choice in class day/time. We also recommend registering at the start of our quarterly sessions.

A: You can apply for Rock School housing after you have completed your audition and have been admitted into the Rock School.
