Scholarships
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our online scholarship forms.  Please download and send us a hard copy.

MoCo Arts believes that all students should have the opportunity to experience the arts. To that end, we offer a scholarship program for all classes, camps and workshops. The funds are limited and allocated for different times of the year. Students interested in scholarship can submit a signed, completed MoCo Arts Scholarship application along with a copy of the most recent IRS form 1040 that lists the applicant as either taxpayer or dependent. Both documents need to be received by the deadline (see dates below) in order for the application to be complete.

Awards will be based on the financial need of the applicant and will not exceed 50% of tuition. Awards will be given based on a percentage of the total cost of the classes applicant is signing up for. Students signing up for both semesters (Sep – Jun) should list that on their application and the award will be for both semesters. Applicant (or parent/guardian) agrees to pay balance of the charges. A non-refundable scholarship review fee of $25 is required at the time of application. This will be applied to the tuition charge.

For those students applying for scholarship, a payment of 50% of tuition is due upon registration. We offer payment plans to spread tuition costs over the length of the class. Payment plans can be set up to either be monthly or bi-monthly on either the 1st and/or 20th of each month. Payment plans will incur a cost of $2.50 per payment, charged in advance in the first payment. Payments can either be made by automatically charging a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) or by providing post dated checks.  Accounts must be in good standing to be considered for scholarships.

Deadlines:
Summer Programs: June 1st
Fall Programs: August 15th
Spring Programs: December 15th

Applications will be accepted up to the deadline; customers can expect notification of award to take place within one week.  Applications received after the deadline will be assessed by the Review Board with no guarantee of award, subject to the availability of funds.

Performances

MoCo Arts mission is about education and our performances are a by-product of this process. No dance student is required to perform. Students in dance classes will be asked to sign a commitment letter if they wish to perform. This commitment letter will outline the dates of additional rehearsals and performances. A student must be able to attend all the additional rehearsals and performances. Parents should review the dates with family and school obligations before signing the commitment letter. If a conflict arises after the commitment letter is signed, the dance director should be notified immediately. MoCo Arts trys to work around school commitments but reserves the right to remove a student from a show if they do not attend the rehearsals as required.

Tickets

Parents and other attendees are responsible for purchasing tickets to MoCo Arts performances in advance. MoCo Arts makes no guarantee that tickets will not sell out. Tickets will go on sale approximately one month prior to the first performance. Tickets may be purchased at MoCo Arts or online for performances at 76 Railroad Street. Tickets to certain off-site venues (Colonial, Redfern) must be purchased directly from the venue. Tickets are non-refundable and there are no exchanges. All audience members, regardless of age, need to have a ticket. The price of the ticket goes directly to pay for the rental, backdrops, lights, spot lights, fog machines, professional technical staff, purchase of music and music editing, royalties, audio equipment, costumes, plus many other expenses, all of which provide a spectacular performance for all to enjoy, and a quality experience for the students.
