    How did you first find out about The First Step / who referred you

      1. Upon review of this agreement, and prior to the next class, students must submit a fully completed Student Registration Package, including the Student Information Sheet and a Credit Card Authorization Agreement or submission of Post-dated Cheques as per the Tuition Protocol. Students will not be accepted in class without the submission of appropriate tuition. Monthly tuition is $195.00.
      2. Please notify the studio office if a student has a medical need (i.e. dietary issues, emotional concerns, diagnosed physical illness, mental illness or related concern.) We are committed to each and every student; understanding their individual needs and character is paramount to the success of this experience. Please take a moment to share with us this critical information.
      3. No lateness without sufficient notice (no later than 3:15 PM on the day of class). Classes start at 4:30 or 7:15 PM sharp, and the doors close when class begins.
      4. Students are responsible for obtaining a copy of lost scripts from their scene partner or from the office by e-mail. Students are encouraged to keep their class material in a Student Workbook.
      5. There is no discount for missed classes. In the event that a student misses class due to a scheduling conflict or illness, students are welcome to attend a different class.
      6. In the case of a physical illness, it is mandatory that the student remain home, get better and make- up the missed class when available.
      7. Students must provide the office and their scene partner with a minimum of 24 hours notice, by e-mail, if they will be absent from class. Note: students must advise the office, not their Instructor.
      8. To withdraw from the program, students must notify the office by e-mail & provide a minimum of 7 days notice. There are no refunds for withdrawing from the program before the end of the month.
      9. Absolutely NO cell phones or electronic devices are permitted in class.
      10. Office hours are 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM Monday to Friday. The studio office is closed on weekends.
      11. Any special props (e.g. plastic swords, “cigarettes”) that are required for scene work must be approved by an Instructor prior to class. Actors must provide their own props, set decorations, & costumes. School furniture, decorations in the lobby & items on staff desks are not available for class use.
      12. No gum, food, or drink is permitted in class, unless it is included in the scene work and approved by an Instructor. Drinking water is provided and students are welcome to bring their own water bottle.
      13. Students and Parents should refer to, and be familiar with, the First Step Online Calendar which provides a complete yearly schedule that identifies all school breaks. As a general rule, classes ALWAYS operate (holidays included) unless otherwise announced by e-mail from the office.
      14. Although the First Step does not participate in social media, class photos and videos may be featured on the First Step website. Photos and videos may also be occasionally used in e-mails home to parents & students.
      15. Now that you’ve finished reading this whole student agreement... everything else is FUN!
