Training in all 7 Pillars at the same time is the most advanced and challenging way to study the craft while giving you the best value on your training. Students who do both halves of the Beginning Acting classes will be eligible to enjoy Scene Study for Beginners by the Winter term. This puts our most ambitious and committed actors on the fast track to advancing through our levels.
Seven Pillars Acting by Sonya Cooke is required of all students taking this course. Purchase the book online.
If you want to do this course and more, opt for one of our Membership Plans to lock in the best value for your training. The more you train, the better you will act.
COVID PROCEDURES FOR IN-PERSON CLASS PARTICIPANTS
Safety is the top priority for in-person training; therefore, failure to abide by the following agreements can result in being asked to leave ASOOC/the classroom, without refund or transfer. Masks and social distancing are required for the full duration of the training. Students are responsible for providing their own masks, but the studio will be equipped with extras, and masks must cover the full nose and mouth. The classroom will also have a no-touch policy, meaning no sharing of physical materials. In the rare circumstance that physical contact or the sharing of physical items are unavoidable, time for disinfection will be allotted. The space is large enough to accommodate social distancing for all members, and disinfectant and other cleaning supplies will be readily available. In the event that a student is sick, Covid positive, was exposed to Covid, or behaved in risky behavior, they are encouraged to attend remotely for that period of time till it is safe to return to the physical classroom. If students are able to get the vaccine ahead of the training, all the better; however, it is not required. Students attending in-person are encouraged to limit their exposure to other people in the 2 weeks before the training and throughout the training, so as to reduce the risk of infection or transmission.
All In-person classes will function in a hybrid manner, which means that at any point a student can opt to join the classroom remotely. This will change and limit the way the student will participate in the classroom, but students will still get to learn and work in the class. Every in-person class will have a Zoom link assigned to it, so should a student need to miss meeting in-person, they can log in remotely and join the class. In the physical classroom, there will be a large screen where remote classmates will be viewable to the group. The teacher, using a laptop on a moving lecturn, will ensure remote participants can clearly hear and see their classmates during class.
As always, there are no returns or transfers. Tuition reserves your spot in class; all classes fill up, so this is the only way to confirm your spot. Tuition is non-refundable nor transferrable, as class is a commitment to yourself, your scene partner, your instructor and the collective.
PAYMENT INSTALLATION POLICY
If an installment is purchased, a Recurring Authorization Payment Form will be part of the in person paperwork we will need completed. If you sign up over the phone, the form will be sent to you. Complete the form and turn it in before class starts. Without the form, you will not be officially registered in the class and will not be allowed to start your training until you have done so. A $1 charge will be made in order to ensure method of payment is valid. The value will be returned back to the card after the payment goes through. The last payment will be deducted February 15th and March 15th.
By opting for Installment Plans, you are making a commitment to pay them as scheduled regardless of absences or attrition; it is a legally binding contract. If such a commitment cannot be made, we recommend paying for the course in full or not enrolling.
All health related absences will be excused, with or without a doctors note. Our nonrefundable tuition policy will stand; however, if you are unable to complete the course due to illness, we are willing to transfer tuition to another class in the following semester. If you are concerned about attending class in person, we will offer online attendance (via video call.) *This attendance policy is temporary, going into effect for the remainder of the Winter 2020 semester, as well as the start of Spring 2020 semester. This policy is subject to change.
MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY
Excused absences may be made up by attending another similar class within 3 months of the absence. No other make-up arrangements or discounts will be offered.
