DUF Refund Policy
DUF 2019 registration fees are committed immediately to the event and are non-refundable.
DUF 2019 Cancellation Policy
By registering for a paid or complimentary DUF 2019 badge you agree not to sell, trade, transfer or share your comp code, QR code confirmation, or badge. In the event that the Danzantes Unidos Festival DUF 2019 determines that you have violated this policy, DUF 2019 has the right to cancel your badge(s) and keep any money paid by you. Registration confirmations and/or badges that have been sold or provided by anyone other than DUF 2019 will not be honored by DUF 2019. All badges are the property of DUF 2019 and must be relinquished to DUF 2019 upon request.
In order to produce the 60+ DUF workshops required to accommodate over 1500 DUF participants, it is necessary to contract with sites that offer both carpeted and tiled floors. Wooden flooring will be installed in movement session spaces which currently have carpeting. Logistically, due to the immense scope of magnitude of this event, wooden flooring is not available in classrooms which currently have a hard surface. Classroom spaces are randomly assigned to workshops based on the needs of the genre and size of the class and DU cannot guarantee who will be assigned to what spaces. Your registration indicates that you are aware of our policy and accept these conditions.
In past years we have been able to ‘gift’ a festival t-shirt to early registrants as a thank you for those early dollars that help us to effectively plan. While it is our intention to continue this free giveaway, we would like to remind everyone that the registration fee does not automatically include a free t-shirt and that for certain, anyone registering after the Regular Registration deadline of February 12, 2019 will not receive free DUF swag.
Parents & Chaperones
Parents & Chaperones are not allowed to sit in the workshop classroom and MAY be invited by each Maestro into the classroom during the last ten minutes of each movement session. DUF provides plenty of activities for Parents & Chaperones to stay nearby and be engaged while on campus at either the Parent Pavilion, DUF Mega-Mercado OR as registrants in Folklorico Media, SEW Much Fun (sewing class) or in the Piñata-making Workshop.

Registration & Enrollment by Purchase Order for Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, Jr. High Schools, High Schools, Colleges & Universities:
- If you are enrolling more than TEN students . . . ‘Requestor’ (that’s you) writes to firstname.lastname@example.org , subject header “DUF 2019 Request for Quote” for the specific number of students that you will enroll and your full contact information (name of school, address and school phone) including a legit email address for that institution (usually ends in dot org or dot edu). You then submit that quote to your institution’s Department Head/Administrator/Accountant.
- While you are awaiting approval, collect the pertinent data from each of your students: full name, contact info, birthdate, t-shirt size & class being requested. Once approved by your institution, your quote number becomes your Purchase Order number.
- Proceed to our website to register and enroll your students for classes. Upon checkout, select the “Purchase Order” option for payment. You will be prompted to enter your Purchase Order number.
- You will receive email confirmation of your order, which you can submit to your administration for a check to be cut. If your school requires further documentation, write to Registration@danzantes.org with your enrollment confirmation number and request an invoice.
- It will be your sole responsibility to ensure that payment is received by us by 3/14/19. When you activate registration by purchase order it becomes a binding contract. Changes to purchase orders, including cancellations, must be submitted by 1/14/19 and approved by DUF Registration.

The fine print:
Purchase Order – A Binding Contract
When a purchase order is written in response to an offer by the vendor and is based on acceptable terms and conditions, it becomes a binding contract. Changes to purchase orders, including cancellations, must be submitted by 1/14/19 and approved by DUF Registration.
