Studio Policies

Class admission:

To apply for classes, please visit our New Student Orientation.  For details click here.  Margie Haber Studio reserves the right to accept or deny admission and does not offer class audits for prospective students.

Class tools:

We ask all students to purchase Margie Haber’s Stop Acting app/digital class to use as a tool to supplement their classes. The purchase of her book is also recommended.

Class payments:

All class payments are nonrefundable & nontransferable 2 weeks prior to class start date.  For our Intensive Studies Program (ISP), class payments are nonrefundable 2 months prior to class start date.  It is the actor’s responsibility to be committed to the class for which they have enrolled to ensure our small class size at the studio.  Any requests to withdraw enrollment need to be made in writing to studio@margiehaber.com 2 weeks prior to class start date.

For intensive courses, class payment is made in full unless student opts for payment plan option by filling out credit authorization form in the office.  For the payment plan option, a 50% deposit is due upon reservation and the 50% remaining balance is processed on the first day of class.

For ongoing courses, payment is due in full upon reservation.  If you are currently enrolled in an ongoing class and want continue registration for the following upcoming session, you must pay in full by the fourth class of your current session to secure your spot.  After the fourth session of each ongoing class, space is made available to those on the wait list for the next round.

The studio does not pro-rate or refund for any missed classes.

Attendance/Make-Up Policy:

If you will be late or absent, it is your responsibility to call or email to notify us in advance.  Professional courtesy is expected.

For ongoing courses, actors are allowed to make up one missed class only.  The make up class must be completed within that month. Ongoing make-ups are to be done with another teacher of the same level.  In a make-up class, the actor may audit and is not guaranteed to work. The teacher will allow the student to work only if there is room available for the actor to do so.

Make-ups are offered as a courtesy of the studio and are not the responsibility of the studio.

For intensive courses, actors are allowed to make up one missed class only.  The makeup class may be completed in the following month’s session.  The actor will make up the same class missed with the same instructor, i.e. if the third class is missed, the actor may make up the third class in the following month’s session with the same instructor.  Please note for your own records which class is missed, as the studio does not keep track of attendance.  If you plan to make up a class, please call or email the office in advance.  In a make-up class, the actor may audit and is not guaranteed to work. The teacher will allow the student to work only if there is room available for the actor to do so.

Miscellaneous:

Please leave the studio in the same or better condition than when you arrived.
