Explanation of Absence
As stated in the “Studio Policies,” no student may have more than two (2) unexcused absences in either of the two 16-week periods that make up our school year.  This applies to all classes.  All absences are considered “unexcused” until an “Explanation of Absence” form is filled out and submitted as a hard copy to William Esper for review. The only reasons for which an absence will be excused are: paid professional acting work, serious illness, or personal emergency.
Explanation of Absence Form

Student IDs

If you would like a student ID, please bring in a standard passport portrait to the office and write your full name, acting teacher and year (1st or 2nd) on the back. IDs will be available on the 1st of each month. If your photo is not submitted by the 1st, you will have to wait until the following month.

 Supplemental Classes

Supplemental classes are ongoing and ever-changing at the studio.  If you are a current student or alumnus and are interested in supplemental classes, please call the studio.
