Frequently Asked Questions
At The Bird and Stone, we will be putting in social distancing measures during most of our classes. However, due to the nature of Arts Education, a lot of our activities are practical and involve collaborating with other students not just intellectually, but physically. Sanitiser will be compulsory to use at the start and end of each lesson. If you child has been in contact with anyone suspected to have the virus or any of the following symptoms, please refrain from allowing them to attend lessons for at least 2 weeks.
All of our team are fully vaccinated by choice. Vaccinations for students and members are NOT required but we strongly encourage you to adhere to the instructions above for our community's safety.
CLOTHING + ITEMS
Participants must wear closed in shoes and comfortable, non-restrictive clothing to prevent injury. School uniform is acceptable for children. All students must have their own water bottle, no sharing due to COVID. For Teen Acting students only, please also bring your own pen and something to write on - no other writing materials needed. Studio T-Shirts are coming soon and will be available to purchase (not compulsory).

EXAMS + EISTEDDFORDS
If your child is undergoing private lessons and wishes to enter for an exam, please contact us and we will provide you with some extra information or you can visit https://www.trinitycollege.com/. We also strongly encourage students to audition for community theatre shows, particularly Tweed Theatre Company. You can visit their website here - https://www.tweedtheatre.com.au/auditions/.
Please know that The Bird and Stone Studio is not a talent agency. We are willing to offer advice on Talent Agencies to anyone inquiring, however, our team is not responsible for the management and representation of your child, career-wise. Our lessons and classes will equip students to seek out representation at their own volition.
