Dance Out: Love and War

They say that all is fair in love and war but I say where’s the fun in that? While they may be unlikely lovers, simply remember that war is a science, love is a many-splendored thing and ultimately we’ll find that there’s something to believe in. So dust off those combat boots, throw on some groovy rose colored glasses, smear on war paint and let’s tango through the the greatest jealousy duet of all time.

Don’t wait for a call from The Vatican or a little fall of rain to join this winter’s ball.

A Dance Out is a revue style performance program where the focus is on dancing! All dance numbers will be performed to tracks so participants can focus on dancing their hearts out!

Basic tuition to participate in an AWT Dance Out is $450.

If the $450 tuition is not within your budget, please consider one of our Pay What You Can options ($400 and $350 for this program). Additionally, if you would like to spread your payments out, you can choose two payments of $200. Our ability to offer this program with affordable options is contingent on those with the ability to pay full tuition choosing that option. If we do not have enough full priced tuition participants, this may result in cancelling the program.

Discount types can not be combined. Tuition does NOT cover a print out of your script/score/sheet music or your costume. AWT has a small budget to cover some specific costume needs. From there, we work with participants to piece together costumes sourced from their closets, thrift stores and the good will of the community.  All tuition payments are final and non-refundable for any reason.

Below is the rehearsal and performance schedule for Dance Out: Love and War. Click on the dot or details below each date for more information!

Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday nights for six weeks. Both casts will rehearse together, but not all participants will be called the full time for every rehearsal. If you are only able to make one day per week, the creative team can design your track so that you will mostly be called on the day of week that works for you. Resources will be made available so you can catch up on anything you miss! During the second week of rehearsals, you will receive a detailed schedule that specifies exactly what dates and times you will be needed.

Performances will take place in the Theater at the 14th Street Y, with a live (vaccinated and masked) audience.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Prior to Launch Day, participants will have the opportunity to list rehearsal conflicts. Resources will be made available so you can catch up on anything you miss outside of rehearsal time. Once rehearsals begin, it is up to the discretion of the creative team whether or not a participant’s role must be reassigned due to missed rehearsals.

If the $450 tuition is not within your budget, please consider one of our Pay What You Can options ($400 and $350 for this program). We are also offering financial assistance for even lower tuition rates (apply here).

COVID safety protocols: In light of recent CDC recommendations, we have decided to restrict participation in our programs to individuals who are fully vaccinated and have received all boosters that they are eligible for. Should you become eligible for additional boosters as the program continues, we will ask for proof of that booster within one week of your eligibility.

As of now, in order to perform without a mask, we will require a negative test result within 24-48 hours of your call time. If a venue we are using for rehearsals or performances has a stricter policy, we will defer to them.

We are also extending the vaccination requirement and to our audience members at this time, and they will also be required to wear a mask for the duration of the performance. Our policy on safety protocols may shift over time as the situation changes.

Rehearsal policy: Participants must sign in with Lobby Security and show proof of vaccination before arriving at the rehearsal room. Temperatures may be taken on site, and an additional health screener may need to be filled out before each rehearsal. All participants will be asked to keep their masks on throughout rehearsals.

AfterWork Theater Cancellation Policy for Musicals, Plays, Sing Outs, Bootcamps and Concerts

Any participant who withdraws from an AfterWork Theater Musical, Play, Sing Out, Bootcamp or Concert (Collectively called a Performance Program) less than 48 hours prior to Launch Day is not entitled to a refund or credit, and is responsible for the full tuition amount regardless of how many monthly payments have incurred at the time of withdrawal. Returning participants who have previously participated in a Performance Program who withdraw more than 48 hours prior to Launch Day may re-purpose their tuition toward a future Performance Program or AWT You Class no more than one calendar year from Launch Day of the initial program purchased. New participants who have not previously participated in a Performance Program who withdraw more than 48 hours prior to Launch Day may receive a full refund and are not responsible for any future payments on their payment plan.

If a program is cancelled due to extenuating circumstances outside the control of AfterWork Theater, there will be no refunds or credits issued, and the value of your unused tuition will be considered a donation to AWT for which you will receive a receipt for tax purposes.

“Try it out” Cancellation Policy Exception

New to AfterWork Theater? We know signing up for new experiences can be scary. That’s why we are offering New Participants a 100% money back guarantee if they attend Launch Day Orientation and choose to withdraw from the program before the end of orientation. By the end of your orientation, if you decide this experience isn’t for you then you’ve made zero commitments, financial or otherwise. New participant attendees who withdraw after their Launch Day orientation is complete – including later that evening or the following day – are not eligible for a refund of any kind and will not be able to repurpose tuition towards a future program.

PLEASE NOTE: A “New Participant” is defined as someone who has never participated in an AWT Musical, Play, Sing Out, Bootcamp or Concert program at the time that Launch Day begins. A New Participant seeking to withdraw from the program must do so via email to info@afterworktheater.org prior to the completion of their Launch Day orientation. They may not postpone their refund request until the cast list is published. Once Launch Day orientation is over, they are no longer entitled to a refund for any reason. Participants who withdraw after Launch Day orientation are responsible for the full tuition amount regardless of how many monthly payments have incurred at the time of withdrawal.

If a program is cancelled due to extenuating circumstances outside the control of AfterWork Theater, there will be no refunds or credits issued, and the value of your unused tuition will be considered a donation to AWT for which you will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
