Terms & Conditions

Classes run weekly in term-time, although additional rehearsals & performances are also occasionally arranged. The dates and times of classes are always published prior to the start of term. However, these are naturally subject to alteration due to unforeseen circumstances, and students will be informed of such alterations in advance wherever possible. Each individual within a class is part of a whole group and as such it greatly helps our work if all students arrive on time and attend all classes arranged for them. Should absences occur, The Young Theatre Company should be notified - in advance if possible - so that we may plan accordingly and keep our records up to date. No refunds will be made for missed classes.

Fees for each term are published prior to the start of term and are payable in advance either termly or half-termly, on or before the first lesson. All payments, either cash or cheque, should be in a named envelope with details of the payment and classes it relates to. Parents are liable for any bank charges incurred by bounced cheques. (All cheques should be made payable to The Young Theatre Company Limited). Fees are not refundable under any circumstances.

Students are required to wear Dance Class Uniform for all Dance Classes, and details of this uniform are available from us. Students must wear Theatre Class uniform for all Theatre Classes, rehearsals and at times during performances. The Theatre Class uniform is a black Young Theatre Company t-shirt with logo, plain black bottoms and plain black footwear. Plain black bottoms must be suitable for the variety of physical activities involved in classes, flares for girls and jogging bottoms for boys. Footwear should be plain black pumps, jazz shoes or ballet shoes. Normal outdoor shoes or trainers are not permitted. All students must come to classes correctly attired with long hair tied back neatly and jewellery and watches removed. All uniform is available directly from The Young Theatre Company.

Students will occasionally be involved in promotional activities for The Young Theatre Company, including T.V, radio, press and internet coverage. Any wish for students to be excluded from such activities must be indicated on the registration form.

All students are expected to conduct themselves sensibly during all classes, showing self discipline and respect towards others at all times. Students who damage company equipment or property through misuse or reckless behaviour will be held liable to any costs of repair or replacement. Eating and drinking are not permitted during classes, rehearsals or performances. The Performing Arts are, by their very nature, reliant upon strict discipline and awareness of others. Students who consistently fail to reach the required standard of behaviour during classes seriously affect the progress and enjoyment of other students and will therefore be excluded from all Young Theatre Company activities.
