Welcome to the new International Dance Ballet Folklórico website. This portal will give both parents and students conservatory updates, calendar information, fundraising opportunities, and student, faculty, and alumni achievements. I hope you find this as a useful tool to navigate through all the exciting opportunities happening this year.

Q: Why is the Parent Funding Agreement so important?

A: The PFA is the donation* each family pledges to the Conservatory. Your pledges help support all aspects of the Conservatory program. It pays for the ingredients and food needed for a robust cooking program, maintenance of appliances, new equipment, instructor salaries, master chef fees and extracurricular activities. 

The 2016-2017 Budget Overview:

  • $437,000 supports 95 students in the program
  • PFA Pledge: $288,598, or 66% of budget
  • Expected Fallout (Unfulfilled Pledges): $51,948 
  • Current actual budget: $236,650, or 54% of total budget

*Donations are tax deductible.
