Your commitment is for each class of the entire session (normally 10-12 weeks), unless specifically discussed with John Strasberg Studios beforehand. The first payment of one half is due three months before the session begins. The final payment is due one month before the first class. There are no refunds. People must pay on time. If a check bounces, you will need to owe what my bank charges, in addition to the class fee. Payment schedules can be arranged.
Because class size is very limited, you pay for every class, whether you are absent, or miss class, including illnesses, professional and work reasons that require your absence. In essence, you re paying for the ongoing interactive relationship with me and the ongoing development of your creative process.
A missed class, for any reason, is lost, and paid for.
Missed classes, for any reason, do not accumulate credit towards future classes.
If you have to leave because of a professional engagement, your place will be guaranteed for you when you return (within a reasonable amount of time), and credit will be given (for up to one year) as long as you notify me in advance.
You are required to pay a deposit of one-half of the total amount to guarantee your place. This payment is due three months before the Intensive begins. Your early commitment simplifies the organization of scenes and partners. If you choose not to use our online Store and wish to pay by bank transfer please advise me when the transfer of funds has been made by using the Contact page. The entire balance is due one month before the first day of the Intensive.
If you cannot participate, and you let me know two months before the Intensive begins, I will try to refund your deposit, less $150.00. However, I must be able to fill your space, and organize the scenes for your partner, and whoever replaces you. If I cannot do this, I will not refund any of the deposit. Final payments are due one month before the Intensive begins. If you withdraw during the final month before the Intensive, there are no refunds.
