There are no refunds or make up for missed classes,
ATTITUDE, COMMUNICATION & ATTENDENCE
Try not to take anything personal. This is a place of learning.
Please be positive and friendly to everyone in class. Be a professional, your scene partners are relying on you! Don't be noisy or disrupt the other students while they are working! Do not to take anything personally in these classes. We are here to help and guide you, not harm you. Communication is key and expected from you at all times. If you have any issue or need clarification of any kind, it is your responsibility to communicate with the instructor during, after or before class. We will set aside time for you in these situations. Our intention is to make your time here a positive, challenging, and inspirational, experience. Your willingness to learn and step up to the plate (or out of your comfort zone) is crucial.
If your classes are at night, please go out in pairs for safety reasons.
BE ON TIME AND BE RESPONSIBLE.
You are expected to be on time (every time) and stay until the end of class. Arrive 10 minutes before your class begins. If you think you will be late or absent you are expected to let your instructor know via text or call every time.Absences and / or coming in late is disturbing to class and is unprofessional.
You may be dropped from class if you are absent or late repeatedly (And this is not grounds for a refund.)
IF YOU ARE SICK DO NOT COME TO CLASS
Do not come to class if you even suspect that you are sick or have been exposed to someone who IS sick.
If you suffer from mental illness or addiction, please consult and get approval from a mental health professional before joining this class as it MAY involve exercises and coaching methods that are emotional in nature and could trigger an emotional and or physical response.
