FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently asked questions
How do you charge tuition?
Tuition is due by the 1st of each month. If you need it come out the 15th of each month, please email the studio email@example.com. All accounts are set up on automatic draft with the credit card provided during registration. By signing up at Young Actor's House you give YAH permission to bill your credit card for all tuition, fees and balances. Tuition will come out on the 1st of every month unless it falls on a holiday/weekend, in which case we will bill on the workday before. All tuition and fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Do you have a sibling discount?
Tuition for the first class will be at the largest full price listed, additional siblings will be discounted 5% per class each. Discount applies only to regularly scheduled weekly classes.
Do you pro rate your classes?
Prorated classes are only available for new students who start in the middle of the month. Tuition is based on the total number of days in the year, therefore tuition remains the same for all months.
Do you offer payment plans?
We do not offer payment plans at this time. The entire balance is due on the first day of class or at the time of coaching.
What is your missed class policy?
There are no refunds or discounts for missed classes. A class missed cannot be made up unless there is another age appropriate class. Classes have to be made up within the month they are missed and approved first. No more than 2 makeups/month. *Should student book professional work in Film or TV, classes may be pro rated or reimbursed based on the discretion of the studio.
Do you offer a free class audit?
Yes, new students are welcome to audit a class in the appropriate age-range. Please be advised that audits are for students only. If the actor likes it and decides to join the class, the full session amount would be due by the second class. If they decide it's not for them, then the audit is free.
How do I cancel my class session?
A 30-day written notice has to be given when canceling a class. Drop forms must be completed and submitted to the Front Desk of YAH to begin the drop period. Students are responsible for all tuition fees during the 30-day drop period. Tuition charges are based on the date of the notice, not the last class attended. No studio fees or registration fees will be refunded when cancelling. Any students cancelling will not be allowed to perform at Local Agent Showcase in the Spring.
What if the class I want to enroll in is full?
If class size becomes maxed out, a waitlist will be open to students wanting a spot. Students on the waitlist will be in offered a spot when one becomes available.
Can parents watch classes their student is in?
During classes, parents are requested to remain outside the classroom to avoid possible distraction. We do not allow parents to view our classes, as we believe it's important for our students to feel as if they have a place where they can grow creatively on their own terms. Just like in the real world where your child will go in for the audition without you, we believe it's important for their development to gain confidence on their own.
If you are interested in seeing your child in class, we offer periodic demo classes (typically the last class of Fall and Winter sessions), where family, friends, prospective students and industry professionals are welcome to attend.
