Fall/Spring 2019-2020 Registration Now Open!

Congratulations on your child being accepted to Dance Theatre of Harlem School’s Fall/Spring 2019-2020 year! If you are returning to our school or joining us for the first time, we have some exciting updates and changes for this coming year.

Online Registration is Open!

For returning and recently accepted students, all acceptance letters and registration packets have been emailed. If you haven’t received anything, please contact us at: registration@dancetheatreofharlem.org.

Easier Payments!

We have upgraded our payment process for families for greater efficiency and ease. DTHS is partnering with the FACTs/Nelnet Company to offer online payments and payment plans. We will continue to offer our 10% Early Bird Discount for those families that want to pay tuition and fees in full (the 10% discount is applied to tuition only and must be paid in full by August 31, 2019). Families that enroll more than one child will be eligible for a 10% sibling discount and there is not deadline to receive this discount.

Please note that only ONE of these discounts per family is permitted.

Tuition Assistance

Applying for Tuition Assistance: The Tuition Assistance Portal is now open for the Fall/Spring 2019-2020 term. If you have been accepted to the Dance Theatre of Harlem School, you can apply for Tuition Assistance.

Tuition Assistance Portal

As a nonprofit organization, Dance Theatre of Harlem raises funds from generous donors to support school operations and to provide Tuition Assistance.  Amounts vary each year. Please note tuition assistance awards will never cover the entire cost of school tuition. Since 2016 we have been able to provide awards up to 25% off of tuition expenses for eligible families
