  • Families will receive class credit on their Studio Director account for any classes cancelled due to COVID. 
  • Dropped classes will result in a pro-rated amount from the date you let us know the dancer is dropping the class (not retroactive).

Students new to TWDCC

Welcome to TWDCC! We are excited to meet and dance with you.

Please fill out the “New Student Intake Form” by clicking on the button below. Micha Scott, TWDCC’s Artistic Director, will contact you in 1-2 business days with your class placement and registration instructions.


Through the Art of Dance

Tannery World Dance & Cultural Center was founded on the principle that dance should be accessible to all. We believe that the arts, and specifically dance, provide an avenue for youth to experience discipline, confidence, and growth. SCOPEDance supports low-income and under-represented youth in Santa Cruz County. Our outreach program brings dance to as many children county-wide as possible.

Families that have a need for partial or full assistance for tuition fill out our SCOPE application. Depending on availability and funding, we will contact you within 2 weeks of submitting your application for approval or to be placed on our waitlist.


  • We follow the guidance for K-12 schools and summer camps from the California Department of Health, and will update our policies as CDC and CDH guidance changes. We have received direct guidance from the Schools + Youth Programs Liaison & Health Program Specialist in the SC County division of the California Dept. of Public Health’s Communicable Disease Unit. We are also adherent to the Tannery Campus protocol.
  • We have the studio professionally cleaned every morning.
  • Dancers, staff, and teachers are temperature checked prior to entering the studio each day. Hand sanitizer is administered then and available throughout the day.
  • Dancers, staff, and teachers are required to wear masks whenever they are inside studios or bathrooms. Masks can be taken off while outside.
  • All parents are required to sign a waiver that says dancers are not COVID positive, and we encourage anyone that has traveled to take a test in the appropriate amount of time after returning from travel. 
  • As per the guidance of Ca. Dept of Health’s Communicable Disease Unit, in the case of an exposure, TWDCC will require the COVID positive student, staff, or teacher to stay away from the studios for the mandatory 10-day period. We will notify all exposed dancers, staff, teachers, and any community members of the exposure. Vaccinated students who have been exposed will be allowed to return to class immediately while unvaccinated students are required to stay off TWDCC premises for 10 days, are encouraged to get tested and monitor their health for symptoms. Unvaccinated dancers who are not able to attend class will be given the option to participate via Zoom. 
  • As per the CA Department of Health K-12 guidance, students who receive a COVID exposure notice at school should refrain from extracurricular or community activities for 7 days (even if that student is allowed back at school with certain restrictions or a negative test), and may return to TWDCC after 7 days if they produce a negative COVID test after Day 5 from the date of last exposure. 

Please reach out to our office with any further questions.

If you attended youth classes at TWDCC during Spring 2021, we have pre-approved classes you are eligible to take. Log in to Studio Director, click the three lines in the top corner, then choose “Enroll in my Pre-approved classes,” click the “Enroll” checkbox on the right side, and follow the directions from there to checkout.

Company members must take required classes in their Company invite and are able to take other pre-approved extra classes.

We understand if in the first few classes, you are still acquiring your dance gear. Please come prepared in clothes your dancer can move in, like a t-shirt and leggings.

Discount Dance Supply is a reliable online source for dance clothes (there aren’t any retailers in Santa Cruz). You can also check out Dancewear Solutions, another online retailer.

We have a shoe bin with lightly used ballet and jazz shoes for young dancers to use/keep if the shoe fits. Please come early to class, and inquire about the shoe bin so we can try to find a pair that can work for your dancer.

All students taking Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, and Contemporary Jazz are required to wear a solid colored leotard or tank top & black leggings or tights/hair tightly pulled back in a bun, ponytail. Jazz requires jazz shoes, Modern, Contemporary and Contemporary Jazz require bare feet. 

Ballet attire (Ballet 1-5 levels): Girls should wear a black leotard, pink tights and pink ballet slippers. Boys should wear a white shirt, black leggings, and black ballet slippers.

Hip Hop dancers may wear shirt/tank top & sweatpants. Hip Hop 1/2 and 3/4 are barefoot, Teen Hip Hop requires clean sneakers.

TWDCC does not allow dancers to wear short shorts or midriff tops in class.
