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. There are limited spots available for students ages 16-17. Students ages 16-17 must submit an audition video, and if accepted must be accompanied by their own chaperone(s). Applicants that are outside of this age bracket will be considered on an individualized basis. 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: All students under the age of 18 must attend this program with a chaperone. Students ages 18+ should attend with a chaperone if they require specific health, independent 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 register?: Students are enrolled when their registration form is complete and their tuition is paid in full. 

 

When to register by?: Enrollment will close when we fill enrollment or by March 15th, 2023. Enrollment is limited, thus allowing for a small and tightly knit ensemble and individual student attention.
