ATTENDANCE

Attendance is very important for students in Performing Programmes (Acting, Musical Theatre and FaTE Youth Theatre) Students should not miss more than 2 classes per term, and when absent, please call ahead to inform the office.

Missing more than 2 classes per term may result in a student’s part in a performance being changed.

Only one make up class will be offered per student per term. Please see the Calendar online for scheduled dates for make up classes. Make up classes will not be transferred to the following term, nor will they be reimbursed.

CLASSROOM ETIQUETTE

Students are suggested to use the bathroom before class.
Students may bring a water bottle into class.
Students must treat instructors and their assistants, as well as other students with respect and kindness.

DRESS CODE/UNIFORM

Our dress code is designed to ensure each student’s comfort, safety and uniformity so that their teacher can give proper guidance.

HAIR: Long hair must be tied back in a ponytail for all classes. No jewellery, costumes or play clothes. These can cause distraction and be a hazard in some cases. Please Click here for more specific information on our Uniform and where to buy uniform shoes.

INJURY

If you have sustained an injury that prevents you from participating actively in a class, if possible we encourage you to attend and observe class in order not to fall behind with material that is being worked on towards showcases and examinations.

Please inform your instructor of any recent illness, injury or other medical conditions that may affect stamina or performance.
