Class Policies

Refund Policy
If you withdraw your child from a class prior to the second week of class, your tuition will be refunded less a $25 processing fee. No refunds will be given after the second class or to a student who auditions for a show.

Registration Information
Classes and teachers are subject to change. If a class fills, waiting lists will be kept and students enrolled in the order that a registration was received if an opening becomes available. 

Attendance Policy
If your student will be missing more than two classes, please contact the Class Coordinator. If your student will be missing the final class/Showcase, please make sure to notify the class coordinator AND teacher during the first class.

Auditioning for a musical production
Students who are ages 8-18 and enrolled in at least one class during the curent session are eligible to audition for any of the productions in that session. Go to SHOWS for more information. 

PLEASE NOTE: Students who are cast in a production are required to attend their CYT classes for the entire 9-week session and participate in Class Showcase. All communication regarding absences must be done by contacting the Class Coordinator.

Should a student’s attendance in classes (or rehearsals) become an issue, he/she will be subject to replacement in the production in which he/she is cast. Special consideration may be granted regarding absences due to illness, family emergency, and/or unforeseen school functions. In these instances, please make requests to the Class Coordinator as promptly as possible for consideration.

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather and/or poor road conditions, classes/rehearsals may be canceled for the safety of our students. Cancellations due to weather will be posted on our website: www.cytkc.org. Many times the weather may be dangerous in the mornings, but by class/rehearsal time, road conditions are fine. A decision will be made by 3pm regarding any cancellation of evening activities. If class/rehearsal is canceled for any reason, an email will be sent to all participants. Updates can also be found on CYT’s website: www.cytkc.org, as well as on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages. We always encourage checking our website first for the most up-to-date cancellation information.
PLEASE NOTE: CYT Kansas City does not credit, refund, or pro-rate tuition for classes canceled due to inclement weather.
