National Darby's Dancers Organization Registration

The Darby's Dancers national organization requires that all dancers are registered with the national organization.

There is a $95 enrollment fee for the national organization annually. Below are three options in regards to the enrollment fee.

  • WDC Darby's Dancers fundraising will cover your dancer's fee.
  • Parents may pay part of the fee to the national organization and have WDC Darby's Dancers fundraising cover the balance. Please notify us if you would like to use this option.
  • Parents may choose to pay the $95 enrollment fee. Payment will be made to Darby's Dancers through WDC (cash or check preferred) at our front desk.
