Refund of study costs

 

This option is for dancers who want to pick up a course or study during their dancing career. It’s a refund up to a maximum of € 10.000 for a maximum period of four years.

Study costs include course or tuition fees, registration fees, books, materials, and travel expenses. Costs of living are not part of this contribution.

Study and income allowance

This is for dancers who are putting a stop to their dancing career. It comprises a refund of study costs and, if necessary, a contribution to costs of living. Sometimes it is possible to receive financial support when setting up a business.

The amount of the study and income allowance depends on what a dancer needs to fulfil his or her plans, the total number of premiums that have been paid and the average salary that has been earned during the dancing career.
