Join Woodlawn Dance Academy

Dance class in studio

Woodlawn Dance Academy is an established dance studio that is proud to serve the Sauk Valley area. It is housed at Woodlawn Arts Academy, which is a state-of-the-art facility featuring three professionally equipped dance studios. Woodlawn Dance Academy offers many styles of dance for ages 3 & up. Our program is a school-year program, with registration opening in late July or early August for the first session.

2022-2023 Registration

Registration for the first session is held at Woodlawn Arts Academy starting with a registration day in late July or early August. Check the fall program guide for exact dates and times.

If you have never taken a class with Woodlawn Arts Academy, you can speed up the registration process by creating a family account online prior to registration day.

Registering on registration day is recommended as classes will fill. However, registration is available until the first day of class.

Families unable to attend Registration Day may turn in registration forms (download a printable registration form here) and payment to the office no later than the Wednesday prior to Registration Day. Registrations will be processed during the appropriate time slot on Registration Day, as time allows. Please note that doing this may prevent you from getting your top choices for classes. NO call-ins will be accepted on registration day!

Registration information for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th sessions will be emailed during the preceding session.

What do these colors mean?

Our three recitals will be red, gold and navy. Please note the recital color assigned to each class when picking out classes and registering. Classes listed in white will be in all three recitals. Classes in gray will not perform in the recital. Many family and friends would prefer to all be in the same recital, so make sure to pick classes with the same designated recital color. When registering, please be prepared with first and second options for classes. Exact recital color days and times will be announced in the early spring. Conflicts on picture, rehearsal and recital days are to be turned in to Becky by mid-January! See the current year’s program guide for exact dates.

Registration Fees

To cover administrative costs, a one-time registration fee per family will be charged at the time of Session 1 registration. Families may choose to pay $35, which includes a digital copy of the dance recital and two tickets; or $50 for a DVD of one dance recital and two recital tickets. Additional DVDs and recital tickets can be purchased closer to recital time.

Session 1 payments are due at the time of registration. PAYMENT PLANS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL SESSION 2.

Past-Due Enrollments & Past-Due Payments

Due to insurance regulations, if your child is not formally registered with payment for a particular session, we cannot allow the child to continue the class until payment is made. This also applies if a failed payment occurs for anyone enrolled in our monthly payment plan option (see below). If extenuating circumstances arise, please contact the Front Desk Manager to make special arrangements.

Payment Plan Options

Woodlawn Arts Academy offers three payment options for school-year classes.

  • Monthly option: Register for all classes for the full school year and have your payment automatically withdrawn from your account monthly. Customers will be able to choose the date that the money is removed from their account monthly, and that will begin in August and end in April. Money for the class tuition for all 4 sessions as well as the $40 costume deposit will be included in the monthly payment plan. The registration fee and any clothing or shoe sales will need to be paid for IMMEDIATELY at the time of registration; these will not be added to a payment plan. Customers will also need to pay the costume balance separately in December or January when those amounts are determined. A checking or savings account, or debit or credit card, may be used for this option. When using a checking or savings account, please be prepared to provide your bank’s routing number as well as your account number. Beginning in 2022: Session 1 payments are due at the time of registration. PAYMENT PLANS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL SESSION 2.
  • School-year option: Register for all classes for the full school year and make full payment at the start of the school year. When using this option, a 5% discount on your year-long tuition bill will be given (4 school-year sessions). The $40 costume deposit, registration fee, and any clothing or shoe sales will not be included in that discount and still need to be paid at registration. Customers will need to pay the costume balance separately in December or January when those amounts are determined. Check, cash or debit/credit cards are accepted.
  • Session option: Students may register prior to each 8-week session. The registration fee as well as the first session tuition will be due at the time of registration.

If a payment extension is needed, please call Dale at (815) 626-4278 prior to the registration due date to avoid the late fee. Registration is not complete until full payment is made or financial assistance funding is in place.

Dance Tuition Cap

Dance tuition will be capped at $225 per session per student, NOT including students receiving financial assistance, Competition Team tuition or fees, private lessons or solos, costumes, shoes or any additional fees. We hope this tuition cap will help defer costs and encourage your dancer(s) to continue to take all of the classes they desire.

Summer Dance Class Registration

In order to place our students in the correct class levels, registration for summer technique classes is not available online. Please call (815) 626-4278 or stop in the main office to register when summer registration opens.
