What is your registration policy?
The registration form must be filled out and the class fee has been paid in full before the first day of class. We cannot guarantee participation in a class without completed registration and payment.
Can my child join a class at any point in the semester?
No. Our classes are built so that each week, students add on to what they learned the previous week. It is not possible to join a class after the first class of the semester has occurred.
Is there a way for my student to audit a class before committing to a full session?
Absolutely. We have PEAK-IN Session, which is a 45 minute after school workshop we offer to schools as a way for students and teachers to see us in action. This workshop is taught by one of our teaching artists. Students can expect to engage in a variety of theatre games and activities. If you are interested in coordinating an audit, please go to Book a Free Demo and fill out the form. A PEAK Team member will contact you within 72 hours. Please note: a minimum of 10 students is required to be present for one of our teachers to visit your school.
What is your cancellation policy for classes & workshops?
If you cancel your registration less than 48 hours before the class starts no refund or credit will be issued. Registration holds a student's spot in a class, making it unavailable for other students to register for that spot. We hope our class is a great fit but, if after the first day of class, you choose not to continue for any reason, We are happy to offer credit for another class, but will not issue a refund.
If you cancel 72 hours before the class begins you'll receive a refund minus a $25 cancellation fee.
In the event, we do not have at least 7 students enrolled in a class, class will be cancelled and parents will be issued a full refund. We will notify parents at least 24 hours before the start of class.
What your Medical Emergency Policy?
While PEAK Theatre Arts teaching artists are trained in First Aid and CPR, we do not have a medical professional on staff. Students are welcome to carry their medicine on them, but our teaching artists are not able to administer medicine of any kind (including prescription and over the counter drugs or topical ointments). In the case of a medical emergency, if we are unable to contact a parent/guardian or if time does not permit, 911 services will be used. All expenses incurred are the responsibility of parent/guardian.
What is your Attendance Policy?
Upon registering for class students agree to:
Attend all classes and rehearsals
Class schedules and times are posted on the registration page.
Students will remain in class or dress rehearsals for the full duration of class or dress rehearsal, or until student is excused.
If a student must miss a class or rehearsal for any reason, parents must contact us at email@example.com
If a student misses more than two classes or more than one dress rehearsal for any reason, they understand they may lose their role, or position.
What is your Behavior Policy?
In order to provide students with a safe and supportive environment students agree to:
Honor all school policies and rules.
Assist with the rehearsals and showcase in any capacity, this includes setting up and breakdown down.
Take care of all props and return all props to teaching artist at the end of the rehearsal and showcase.
Make rehearsals the best they can be.
Also, we do not tolerate any form of physical or verbal abuse, harassment, vandalism, or the use of any illegal substances. Any behaviors found in violation of this policy will be addressed and the student may be asked to leave class. No refunds will be issued in the event that the PEAK Theatre Arts behavior policy is violated.
What should my student bring to class?
First and foremost, students should bring their passion, can do attitude, and imagination! All students should wear comfortable clothes to move with closed-toed shoes that will stay on the feet when jumping, crawling and rolling around. Please bring a light snack and water bottle.
Is there a final performance showcase?
In PEAK Theatre Arts, the focus is on exploration, technique, and “process” rather than “product”. That being said, we like to give students the opportunity to share what they have been learning with an audience, so all of our classes will give a showcase. Friends, family and community members are invited to attend.
Does everyone get to have a role in the play?
There is opportunity for students to shine centerstage as well as backstage, whether they are acting or working as a set designer, costume designer or even stage manager. We believe theatre arts offers a robust of opportunities to create, learn and grow. Students will be able to choose between performance or production and our teaching artists will nurture their interests. For students who are interested in performance, everyone will have a speaking role in the play, and a chance to shine, although not every role will have the same number of lines to memorize. As we say in theatre, "there are no small parts in only, small actors." This is our way to encourage our students to make the most of the role they have to play.
How are roles determined?
The “audition process” is very informal so both experienced and beginning actors feel comfortable. On the first day of class, our teaching artist will lead the in a series of acting games and improv exercises and observe the way each student uses their voice, body and imagination. Although students have the opportunity to express the role or position they would like to play, PEAK teaching artist will make all final choices when assigning the roles and positions to each student.
What should my child wear for dress rehearsals and showcases?
All students should wear a black bottom, a white top and comfortable closed toe shoes. Any costumes or props will be provided by PEAK.
