Tuition Scholarships:  If you are having financial difficulties, due to Covid, we want you to be able to participate.  Please contact us privately so we can discuss a fee that works for you.

Cancellation Policy

Tuition is non-refundable this year.  Sorry.  Please choose your classes wisely.  

Tip Jars and Donations:  We are encouraging our performers to have tip jars on their personal web pages. 


If for some reason, a performer has not set up a tip site, we will set up an Upper Potomac tip jar, which you can make donations to either a specific performer or to the weekend in general in order to help us sponsor scholarships for students in financial stress and to insure the health and future of the program. 


Donations made to Upper Potomac specifically are tax-deductible... tips to performers are not.  FYI
