insurance. Attend all classes and be punctual in everything.

second in Santiago) students may not consume alcohol or any type of drugs.
If this happens we will know that the student will have made the decision not to continue in the festival and we will provide
him/her with the conditions to return to Santiago.
When applying make sure that in addition to the musical, you also agree with the rights and responsibilities that
everyone will have to be part of the festival!
