Class Policies

Enrollment fees for classes and workshops are refundable prior to the first class or workshop session.  There are no refunds or credits thereafter, unless The Linklater Center for Voice and Language (“The Linklater Center”) cancels a class or workshop.

If a studio space is closed due to inclement weather and the closure affects a class or workshop, a refund for that particular session’s prorated cost will be offered, or an alternate meeting date and location will be offered to make up for the missed session.  Otherwise, no refunds or credits will be given for any missed class or workshop sessions.

No makeup classes or workshops are offered.

Our faculty are all working theater professionals with busy and variable schedules.  The Linklater Center reserves the right to change teachers for its classes and workshops at any time and without advance notice.

As fellow professionals and artists, we ask that you try to always arrive on time and ready to work.

Privacy Policy

Effective May 25, 2018

The Linklater Center for Voice and Language, LLC (Linklater Center) respects the privacy of all workshop and class participants, and others who contact us and/or visit our website.  We do not collect and retain personally identifying information about you unless you choose to provide it to us.  The provision of such information is strictly voluntary.

When processing your payment for a class or workshop, Linklater Center collects your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number – as well as the amount paid.  This information is used to acknowledge receipt of payment as well as for Linklater Center’s financial recordkeeping.  Citizens of the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Canada will not be included in Linklater Center’s mailing lists unless Linklater Center receives from them an explicit request to be included in such lists.  If you wish to be removed from Linklater Center’s mailing list, please contact us at mail@thelinklatercenter.com or unsubscribe from a Linklater Center e-mail.

A record of your payment for a class or workshop, along with your contact information, is maintained in Linklater Center’s paper and electronic files.  Photocopies of checks are retained indefinitely.

The names of class and workshop participants are provided to those instructors who are teaching that particular class or workshop.  If a participant notifies Linklater Center that he or she wishes to contact an instructor, that instructor will be provided with the participant’s e-mail information to facilitate contact.  Citizens of the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Canada must include in their request to contact an instructor a notice that they are willing to have their e-mail address shared with that instructor.  From time to time, class or workshop participants have requested a class contact sheet.  Linklater Center will contact each participant individually to inquire as to that person’s willingness to have his or her e-mail address shared on a contact sheet, and will only include those participants who have replied in the affirmative.

The names of class and workshop participants, and amounts paid for classes and workshops, is stored in Linklater Center’s accounting software.  Names and contact information of participants and others who are included in Linklater Center’s mailings may be stored in Linklater Center’s Network Solutions e-mail system, as well as in Linklater Center’s Constant Contact account.  If Linklater Center encounters difficulty in processing a payment, Linklater Center may use this information to contact the prospective participant(s).  If a class or workshop participant or mailing list member requests a copy of his or her personal data, Linklater Center will provide such data to the participant in electronic format.  If a class or workshop participant or mailing list member requests that his or her personal data be erased, Linklater Center will comply with such requests when feasible – however such information may need to be preserved in order for Linklater Center to maintain its financial records, and/or to comply with federal and state laws and reporting requirements.  Linklater Center may release information if required to do so by law or if by our sole discretion such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of our website, Linklater Center, our members, other users, and the public.

Linklater Center does not collect information on individuals’ identities from its website, other than the information that such donors choose to provide.  Information collected on Linklater Center’s website is only sufficient to show us the number of visitors Linklater Center has received on any given day, as well as the referrers, search engine terms used to locate us, the top posts and pages viewed, and the clicks on links.
