In taking part in any rehearsal, performance, workshop or event it is agreed that any use of resources, techniques and ideas will not be used, amended, copied or replicated at any other event, or to any group or in any venue. If found to be used, legal action will ensue against the individual.
Do Your Thing™ reserves the right to stop admission of any member who does not fulfil the requirements or who is deemed to be joining Do Your Thing™ to abuse their membership to access the intellectual property or brand owned by Do Your Thing™.
Members wishing to participate in public performances will generally be required to have completed a full term’s membership and to have attended a minimum of 70% of rehearsals immediately prior to the performance. This requirement may be varied at the discretion of the Musical Director, who reserves the right to determine whether a member is ‘performance-ready’ to represent Do Your Thing™.
Do Your Thing™ rehearsals run in term time. Do Your Thing™ reserves the right to alter the schedule of rehearsals to fit in with performances and other events that may be taking place. No refunds will be given in these circumstances. If rehearsals are cancelled due to acts of God (Weather etc) then Do Your Thing™ will make best endeavours to provide alternative rehearsal time over the next two terms. No refunds will be given in these circumstances.
Do Your Thing™ may from time to time provide additional facilities such as downloads, special rehearsals and shows. These are not part of the basic membership facilities and are provided solely at the discretion of Do Your Thing™.
Those who do not have internet facilities may not be able to access some of these additional provisions.
Membership costs may vary each academic year and members will be notified of any change beforehand.
Refunds are at the sole discretion of Do Your Thing™ depending on the circumstances.
In making an application, members are assumed to be medically fit to undertake the vocal and physical demands of Do Your Thing™. If an individual has any doubts, these should be indicated to Do Your Thing™ prior to their application or agreement to these terms. Members are encouraged to advise Do Your Thing™ (in confidence) of any known medical condition which may potentially require immediate first aid or attendance/intervention by trained medical personnel.
Any member who does not attend for one half term or six consecutive rehearsals unless there are extenuating circumstances that either the director, a section leader, or a member of the DYT admin team have been informed about, will forgo their membership with DYT. We will be unable to hold people’s places open indefinitely, unless there are special reasons or circumstances, in which we case we will do our utmost to accommodate the DYT member.
The director reserves the right to refuse the admission of any member.
By joining, it is agreed that photographs and film footage may be taken of all the members and used for advertising and marketing purposes in relation to Do Your Thing™.

Any form of negative behaviour, whether written or verbal, towards others including Do Your Thing members, Do Your Thing™ choir leaders, the Do Your Thing office staff or to the rehearsal and performance environment/staff or audience will lead to cancellation of membership. In this case, membership payment will not be refunded.
