Registration, Costs and Housing FAQs

 

What is the legal business name: ITDP is a branch of International Dance Project. International Theatre & Dance Project refers to the program title. Please make all checks payable to our legal business name International Dance Project or IDP. 

Who can register?: This program is appropriate for students with a passion for theatre and/or dance between the ages of 18-25. Enrollment is limited, thus allowing for a small and tightly knit ensemble and individual student attention. International Theatre & Dance Project is committed to equality of educational opportunities and does not discriminate against applicants, students, or faculty staff based on race, national origin, religion, sex, or disability.

 

Chaperones: There are limited spots available for students age 17. If accepted, students under 18 must be accompanied by their own chaperone(s) or submit a chaperone waiver. Applicants that are outside of this age bracket will be considered on an individualized basis. Students ages 18+ should attend with a chaperone if they require specific health, assisted living, and/or self-care needs, or have difficulty with the demands of Greece's climate and landscape, as ITDP is unable to offer personalized assistance in these areas.

How to enroll?: Students are enrolled when their registration form is complete and their tuition is paid in full. 

 

When to enroll: Discounted early enrollment applications are due by January 17, 2025. Enrollment will close when we fill enrollment or by April 15th, 2024. 

How can I hold a spot?: Email registration form, cover letter, and audition materials to ITDPGreece@gmail.com. Submit payment on Square (additional fees apply for electronic transactions) or send a check made out to IDP via mail. You will receive a confirmation email once we receive your materials. Deposits will be refunded ONLY if an applicant is not accepted into the program.
