1.5 It is your responsibility to disclose to the tutors or management any condition, physical or mental, that may make it difficult for you to work at The Cockpit, or endanger you or others. The Cockpit undertakes to help as far as is possible in such cases.


2.1 Progression requires that you have sufficiently achieved a standard high enough to continue. Missing classes will jeopardize your progress and may result in you being removed from the course. Practice of the techniques is encouraged in Drop-In classes where students can further apply the skills learnt in the Meisner Stages.

2.2 All courses run by the salon:collective are designed to  treat students as professional actors and members of a theatre company; as such, professional behaviour and mutual respect are expected at all times.  Students are expected to be available to work between sessions and meet up with fellow actors as required.  Students are also required to be confidently off-book by the deadline set by the director where applicable.  All students are required to attend all classes and call times without exception. Failure to do so may result in the participant being removed from the course and/or excluded from the final performance/mock audition without refund of the course fee.

2.3 On rare occasions we may be required to reschedule classes.  If this occurs as much notice as possible will be given but students will be required to make every effort to accommodate a new class schedule.  If any student is unable to attend a class they will be required to catch up outside scheduled class time as appropriate.
