Performer Expectations & Code of Conduct
All participants, in cooperation with themselves and the leaders, are expected to discipline themselves to give their individual best each day. This will be a necessary part of our daily responsibility (teachers, parents, and students) to commit to being respectful, cooperative, courteous, and trustworthy, as we strive for excellence. This will create the best atmosphere in which teaching, and learning, can take place.
Respecting ourselves and others means that we are to think of others as wonderfully important as we think of ourselves.
Being courteous means being polite to teachers and other participants, and using good manners is a necessity.
Cursing, rudeness, and fighting will not be tolerated.
If you ever need to talk to about anything, whether you’re feeling happy, sad, threatened, mad, frustrated, afraid… anything at all, always feel free to go to a teacher or your parents.
Never use your time or energy to intentionally make someone feel as if they are not as good as you believe you are. REMEMBER, IT TAKES LESS TIME AND EFFORT TO TEAR SOMEONE DOWN THAN IT DOES TO BUILD HIM/HER UP. Doing what is “right” is often HARD WORK!
Always do whatever is needed to listen to, and hear, what someone is saying. This is a very important part of our growing and learning. If we’re not willing to listen, we’re not willing to learn. It will either guide in what “to do” or what “not to do”.
Please be on time each day to any class, rehearsal, or any scheduled activity.
Do not enter any area that is told, or shown, or has a sign that is said to be off limits. This is for everyone’s safety.
No gum, candy, or any type of food is permitted during class or rehearsal time. Water bottles are permitted, but just like any time when a participant needs to go to the restroom or do something that is not directly related to class, you must ask permission.
If you make a mess, clean it up. Do not drop or throw wrappers or containers/trash around and leave it for someone else to clean behind you.
Do not interrupt class or rehearsal with excessive talking, unless the teacher has given permission. This is not being courteous to the class or the teacher. Please raise your hand and be acknowledged if there is something that you simply MUST say.
Never leave a class or rehearsal without permission. Always ask to leave the room for anything that may arise or happen unexpectedly.
Taking care of any class materials, props, or anything that is in any particular space is part of your responsibility.
Helping each other whenever possible or whenever you see a need is important. If you’re not sure if it’s an appropriate time, ask the teacher. Helping one another and giving of ourselves is essential to striving for excellence.
Never take something that doesn’t belong to you. If you find, see, or are given something that you did not enter the building with, please give it to a teacher. They will be responsible for returning it to whomever it belongs.
Excessive discipline problems will be handled with the utmost of care by at least 2 administrators.
If a participant is unable to discipline themselves to correct his/her “behavioral problem”, a conference with a parent or guardian will be the next step. If not corrected within a timely manner, the parent or guardian will be notified that the participant can and will be dismissed and asked not to return. This doesn’t mean they could not participate in other programs. It only means that they will no longer be allowed to continue in the particular program from which they were dismissed.
