Questions about Classes
Can I transfer class sections mid-semester?
Each class works on their own material, so there is a possibility of transferring if you do so within the first week or two of the semester. Once we approach the third week of the semester it will be difficult to make a change.
Is there a performance at the end of the semester?
We at Applause take our name very seriously. That is why almost every class ends with a performance! We believe that there is nothing like the thrill of putting your training to work in front of an audience. The type of performance varies depending on the type of class. Please reference the class page on the website for specific details on end-of-semester performances.
How do I schedule an audition for Applause Dance Company or a Musical Theater Performance class?
Please reach out to our office by calling 212-717-0703 or e-mailing email@example.com to request an audition.
Do you offer private lessons?
We do offer private lessons! If you would like to receive one-on-one coaching from one of our exceptional teachers in acting, singing, dancing or audition prep, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
Questions about Summer Programs
Do you offer early drop-off or late pick-up?
No, we do not offer early drop-off or late pick-up, but we have a beautiful outdoor courtyard for you to wait in with your child if you arrive early.
Do you allow parents in the classroom?
We do not allow parents in the classrooms, so please sign up assuming your child can handle a separation for the entire length of the day. We always end our week with a performance for family and friends where you can see what your child has been working on!
Do students entering the Jr. Clubhouse (ages 3-5) need to be fully potty-trained?
Yes, we require all of our summer students to be fully potty-trained before signing up.
What does my child need to bring for the Applause Summer Program?
Please pack a labeled water bottle, a nut-free lunch and nut-free snack each day. Many children also bring a light sweater or sweatshirt for when they are in the air-conditioning. Please make sure all personal belongings are labeled with your child’s name.
Can my child sign up for multiple weeks of the Applause Summer Program?
Yes! We have many students who will sign up for the entire summer as we work on different material each week. While the structure of the week is consistent, we refresh our theme, movie script and songs each week and every Friday there is a brand new performance!
Is it possible to switch weeks after I’m registered?
Yes, we allow all students to switch weeks as long as we are notified before June 1st.
