What is Young Actors Space’s attendance policy?
In an ideal world, students would be able to attend every class in a session they sign up for - but we understand that life happens. For this reason, during a normal 8 – 12 week session we allow up to two expected absences which we can prorate off the total price of class. For classes lasting less than 8 weeks we allow up to one excused absence*. In order to count as an expected absence, you must inform us via email of any absences prior to the start of the session.
An expected absence is any absence you make us aware of prior to the start of the session. An unexpected absence would be any missed classes we were not informed of prior to the start of the session.
If you know you will not be able to attend every class, we kindly ask that you wait for a future session to enroll.
*Makeup classes and prorates are not offered for our Dialects A and Dialects B classes or any Summer Programs.
What if my young actor or myself unexpectedly misses a class due to illness, booking a job, family emergency, etc.? Can I get a refund for those unattended classes?
While we are unable to issue a refund for unexpected absences, we are able to give you credit for the value of no more than one unexpected absence towards a future session.
In order to earn this credit, please make us aware of the unexpected absence as soon as you know you or your young actor will miss class. If you wait until the class is already missed to let us know, or do not inform us at all, we will not offer a credit for the class.
What if I know that my young actor or myself will miss more than two classes during a
We would ask that you delay registering until a future class in order to give that spot to a student who can attend the full session. If our class schedules do not work for you, we also offer private coaching which we can schedule around your availability.
Do you offer make up classes for missed classes?
We do not offer or guarantee dedicated makeup classes.
If during a session there are multiple classes for the same age group running concurrently, actors are welcome to makeup in the other class. For instance, if there is both a Saturday and Sunday teen class, a student from Saturday who must miss a class and lets us know ahead of time is welcome to makeup the absence in Sunday.
These opportunities are contingent upon multiple classes being available and students informing us of the absence ahead of time. Makeup opportunities do not extend past the current session of enrollment.
