Dancing Grounds is a nonprofit organization that operates its youth programs on a sliding scale basis. In other words, we ask all families to pay what they can within their means. The real cost of Dancing Grounds Summer is $600 per child. That includes compensating our excellent education staff and teachers and covering essential program costs. The total tuition for the DG Summer 2018 year is $400 (payment plans are available with card on file required). We work tirelessly to raise additional funds to cover the full program cost per child and provide additional financial assistance to families that need it. 

Our financial aid program is a need-based and factors in household income, family size and the case-by-case situation of each family individually. We do not require the submission of any financial paperwork. We trust our families and rely on their honesty in communicating how much tuition they can afford to contribute to the program. Our general guidelines are as follows:

· 25% discount on tuition is awarded to families who have multiple children enrolled in DG programs or other paid extracurricular activities.
· 50% discount on tuition is awarded to single parent household or families with limited working capabilities.
· We occasionally award full scholarships, but we reserve these for families with disabled, unemployed, or elderly heads of the household and other extreme cases.

We have NEVER turned away a family due to lack of funds. Please do not hesitate to ask us for assistance if you need it! 

Dancing Grounds Summer is made possible with generous support from:
