Showbiz Policies

Showbiz Kidz Policies

Refunds: All requests for refunds or credits must be submitted in writing and emailed to info@theatre360.org. It is understood that if we choose to cancel, a credit or refund will be provided up to 14 days prior to the start of the camp minus a $125 deposit for two-week camps or $75 for one-week camps or, for Showbiz Kidz Camp, $45. If a refund is granted, please allow up to 30 days for processing. Credits are good for up to one year from the start date of the class. Credits cannot be transferred to a refund at any time for any reason. Credits cannot be used for anything other than a class or camp, including but not limited to: production fees, private lessons, New York trip fees, tickets or workshops. Credits are non-transferable to anyone else. We do not pro-rate any portion of the camp fee and do not offer refunds/credits due to illness or personal scheduling conflicts.

Cell Phones: We agree that cell phones can be disruptive and that taking or making calls, texting or using the internet during class is inappropriate.  Cell phones are only allowed as your device to login to class, recording devices, to take notes, or to mark calendars. We will notify parents/guardians of inappropriate cellphone use.

Dress Code:  Students should feel comfortable to move freely without reservation.  If skirts or dresses are worn, shorts must be worn underneath.  For safety reasons, no sandals, flip-flops or crocs are allowed.  For dance classes, jazz shoes or ballet slippers are suggested, but tennis shoes are fine.  Long hair must be pulled back.

Visitors/Class Observation: Please note that Theatre 360 normally maintains a closed-class policy. However, due to the circumstances Theatre 360 understands that students will need parental assistance and guidance before, during, and/or after an online class. We ask, however, that students be setup in a quiet room with limited distractions.

 Conduct: It is understood that Theatre 360 and its employees and volunteers do not discriminate based on gender, race, creed, ethnicity or religion. We agree that the students must treat one another with the highest respect. We agree that INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR AND/OR PROFANITY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND THAT STUDENTS WILL BE DISMISSED FROM THE THEATRE if behavior becomes an issue. It is understood that if a student violates Theatre 360 policy, the parent will be contacted in a timely fashion and steps will be taken to correct the matter. We agree that if the child’s behavior does not improve, Theatre 360 will dismiss the student and that in all cases, Theatre 360 has final say in any dismissal. It is understood that the following behaviors are criteria for immediate dismissal: disrespect toward faculty or staff member or anything that manifests contempt for Theatre 360 authority; roughhousing, fighting, disruptive and/or threatening behavior, bringing any weapon of any kind; threatening any student, teacher, staff member or parent; gang/crew involvement (dress, signs, language, etc.); being in possession or under the influence of any illegal drugs or alcohol; smoking in the theatre or within 50 feet of the theatre grounds; theft of any theatre or personal property; damage of any kind to theatre or personal property. We agree to speak to our children and remind them of the correct and expected way to behave while in school. It is understood that if at any time, a parent can no longer support Theatre 360 policies, they are encouraged to withdraw their child, and no refund or credit will be provided. It is understood and we agree that parents and guardians should not upbraid, insult, or abuse any member of the theatre administration, faculty, parent, student or staff on or off the theatre premises.

Disclosure: It is understood that the parents/guardians of students enrolling in class are obligated and required to inform Theatre 360 at the time of the application, of any physical or behavioral problems the child has which have required professional treatment.  This is a school of theatre and it is understood that the school may decline to accept such child, or may revoke such acceptance, when it is apparent the child may not have a successful experience at the theatre or may cause other students to not have a successful experience at the theatre.  For a successful experience at Theatre 360 complete transparency is mandatory.  Theatre 360 cannot be held liable or responsible for any issues that may occur due to non-full disclosure.  It is understood that the staff and faculty of Theatre 360 are trained theatre teachers—not therapists or counselors.
