Code of Conduct

Do Your Thing™ aims to create a safe and positive environment for all its members. In order to do this we must ensure acceptable standards of behaviour from our members.

GENERAL

Parents/carers for children in Yellow and Orange groups (Kids Choir) should remain on the premises at all times. There is a waiting area adjacent to the rehearsal space, however the partition will be kept closed whilst rehearsals are in progress. Parents/carers for children in the Green group (Youth Choir) are permitted to drop children off. 

On arrival, please register your child’s attendance at the welcome desk

Please ensure that your child brings a bottle of water with them to keep their voices hydrated during rehearsal.

If your child wishes to participate in public performances as part of the choir you will need to purchase an official DYT Kids or Youth Choir t-shirt.

Payment

Rehearsal fees will be taken via direct debit on the 1st of each month.

Rehearsals are held during term time only, however monthly subscription payments continue during term breaks as they are intended to provide a simple method of paying an annual fee by instalments, they do not reflect “per session” fees.

The monthly subscription will cover all regular weekly Do You Thing: Kids & Youth Choir rehearsals plus any extra rehearsals which may be called in the event of special performances.

The subscription will not cover special events and workshops which may also be available from time to time and for which an additional fee may be charged.

When initially signing up to the membership, any scheduled sessions before the first direct debit payment date (1st) will need to be paid for via a single electronic (BACS) payment. The pro-rata weekly amount used for this calculation will be advised and fully explained, and relevant bank details will be provided at the time.

Cancellation

In the event you wish to cancel your child’s subscription, a minimum of one month’s notice will be required. No refunds will be given in the event your child does not attend rehearsals during the notice period.

ILLNESS

Please do not attend rehearsal if you or your child feel unwell or if either of you is experiencing symptoms of a respiratory infection.

A sanitising station will be available at the welcome/registration desk. 

It should be noted that there may be an increased element of risk of virus transmission associated with singing indoors in a communal setting. By attending rehearsals, you acknowledge that you understand the risk involved and that you are willing to accept it.

The above may be subject to change at any time to reflect official Government guidance, particularly in relation to Covid-19. Do Your Thing will always adhere to Government guidance, however additional measures may also be introduced at the discretion of the Musical Director in order to best safeguard members of the choir.

Communication

Please ensure that the Do Your Thing™ admin team is made aware if your child has any medical issues which may require intervention whilst at rehearsal.

Please ensure the Do Your Thing™ admin team is made aware if you do not wish your child to be included in official Do Your Thing™ videos/photographs which may be used for marketing and publicity purposes. Email admin@dytchoir.co.uk to advise. Please note that we are unable to control the content of unofficial photographs taken by parents/audience members at public events.

Data Protection Act

Personal and private information held by Do Your Thing™ will not be passed to any external bodies or organisations unless agreed to by each member (parent/guardian).

Amendments

Do Your Thing™ reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time without notice.
