PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION FORM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Note: Enrollment will be limited to eight (8) performing schools, with no limitation on the number of students attending; it is unlikely that we will place a limit on the number of observing schools, but we reserve the right to do so.

Reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis when accompanied with check or money order. Once registration is filled, a waiting list will be kept. Refunds will be made to schools if and only if cancellations occur early enough to allow a school on the waiting list to attend and perform and if a tax I.D. or SS# is provided. Absolutely, NO refunds after Friday, February 07, 2020.

Please note: SFA faculty will be on Christmas Holiday Dec. 14-Jan. 14. Confirmation of registration and answers to any inquiries made during that time will be made immediately upon our return.
