I understand there is a mandatory NON-REFUNDABLE $40 Registration Fee at the start of each Academic School Year or at time of Registration. This registration fee is due again at the top of each school year regardless of time of enrollment and is required in order to register in or trial any group class or show program. I understand that the registration fee is a separate charge from the total tuition listed for a class or show program and does not count toward my tuition payment for a class or show program.
I understand that upon enrolling myself/my child in any show program or group class, I MUST be enrolled in Auto-Pay through the DSP system with a valid and current credit or debit card, regardless of my chosen payment method (eg: check or cash) to pay my tuition balance.
I understand there will be NO refunds for any reason due to my/my child’s absence or withdrawal from a group class or show program after enrolling. Rollover class credit is neither guaranteed nor will be granted for any reason. I understand that once I have enrolled in a class, I am responsible for the total tuition balance for that class except in the case of a class change/swap. I am also responsible for any additional tuition due in the case of a price increase between classes. Class changes and swaps made after I/my child enrolls in the class will incur a $15 fee. Private lesson cancellation from myself/my child requires a 24-hour minimum notice and will only be rescheduled based on instructor availability.
I understand full payment or a signed payment plan with a valid and current method of payment must be submitted before casting is announced for any show program or before my child may continue group classes at BARCLAY Performing Arts. If I/my child withdraws after casting or withdraws from a class after confirming enrollment, my remaining balance will be immediately charged to the card on file at the time of the withdrawal. If my method of payment is declined, this balance will remain on my BARCLAY account and must be cleared before enrolling in any other programming at BARCLAY Performing Arts and its partnering theatre locations.
By signing this, I acknowledge that I have read the above statements and agree to the terms therein.
BARCLAY Performing Arts seeks to promote a safe and comfortable environment for its events that can be enjoyed by all participants and staff. To that end, we have established this Code of Conduct to which we expect all attendees and staff to adhere.
BARCLAY expects students and staff members to behave in an appropriate, mature, and responsible manner. We expect common sense to rule and for everyone involved to have a general sense of the safety and well-being of those around them. Students and staff members are expected to treat others with courtesy and respect. Harassment or intolerance is unacceptable.
BARCLAY management or authorized staff may remove attendees from a BARCLAY event or class for any reason. We will endeavor to provide a verbal warning to you and allow you to correct your behavior before removing you from the event, when appropriate. There may be times when we immediately remove an attendee when it is determined such removal to be in the best interest of BARCLAY, our students, Somerset Shoppes, or the general public. While we imagine the reason for such removal will be obvious, we are under no obligation to disclose the reason for removal. If you are removed, you will not be entitled to a refund in any way.
While not exclusive, the following list provides examples of behaviors or actions that may constitute your immediate removal from a BARCLAY event or class.
-Violating any laws
-Failure to comply with BARCLAY staff instructions
-Physically destructive behavior
-Endangering the safety or yourself or others
-Threatening or harassing others/violation of the BARCLAY Code of Conduct
Incidents that violate this Code of Conduct should be reported to BARCLAY management or authorized staff. BARCLAY will take reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of those reporting incidents, when requested. Please be aware the BARCLAY staff may need to provide information to authorities in the case of violations of the law.
All students should be in their BARCLAY uniform when attending any class or lesson. This uniform consists of:
• A BARCLAY shirt
• Bottoms that are comfortable for moving around in (this includes any athletic wear such as leggings or sweatpants, or dance shorts and tights)
• Tan Jazz shoes and/or Dance sneakers
• Hair must be pulled back off of your face and secured with a hair tie if it is long enough
to be pulled back.
• No jewelry should be worn and no cell phones or smart watches are allowed in the
Students should all come prepared with pencils, notebook and/ or their scripts at every rehearsal.
Like a sports team has a uniform, so do we! There are many reasons for this dress code which we are happy to explain if asked. If you happen to have a difficult laundry day we ask you wear a solid colored shirt with no writing in place of your uniform tee. We appreciate your efforts to respect this dress code! Additionally, not being in dress code may result in you/your child not being included in content posted on BARCLAY social media pages.
IN-CLASS OBSERVATION & VISITORS:
For safety reasons and class quality control, parents/guardians or any non-students are not permitted beyond our front room unless accompanied by a member of staff or with permission/agreement from a Staff member. There are many reasons for this, including that we want to be able to keep the surprises of your children’s performances! This policy applies not only to classes, but also rehearsals and private lessons. Please also note that entry through the back door is limited to BARCLAY staff and students only. If you need to use the bathroom let the front desk know, and that is of course totally acceptable!
Any visitors that need to go beyond our front room for an extended period of time will need to receive a handstamp from our front desk manager that lets our staff know they are approved to be present. If you are a visitor without a stamp, you will be asked to go get one. Our studio is set in a busy shopping plaza that hosts thousands of people every day. These policies are set in place to ensure everyone’s safety and to maintain our busy schedule. We thank you for your understanding!
Please note that we do take attendance and preparation seriously at BARCLAY, we care about you! Please do plan to be at lessons, classes and rehearsals on time or let us know if you are going to be absent or late, are not feeling well, etc. A quick text or email to the front desk is all we need, and it makes a big difference!
BARCLAY is a physically and emotionally safe and all-inclusive space. Bullying of any team member - staff or student- whether in person or online is not tolerated. Repeated negative behavior may result in a suspension of attendance without refund, so please keep eyes on your child’s texts and social media in regard to their BARCLAY community members.
We truly appreciate you choosing BARCLAY to be your theatre home. It has been a journey for all of us, but to see the studio bustling and full of energy again means more to our team than you may know. If there is anything we can ever do for you, or if you have any questions about any of the above, please contact the front desk at 561-344-5082 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here for you.
