Why do we offer a 4 week trial?
We take into consideration if the teacher was unfortunately ill on the trial week and there was a stand in or guest teacher, each class is planned differently and focusses on different elements. One week might focus on performance skills, another week might be on technique or posture so a one class trial does not give a true reflection of the class.
It takes time to bond with the teacher and the other students and we want each potential new student during the trial to feel friendships are starting to blossom and for them to feel settled, again this will not be possible from a 1 week trial.
We want our potential new students to have the full experience of everything our classes and the school offers and we can not do this in one week, especially for our pre school students it can take a good few weeks to build their confidence and ensure they feel settled and happy.
During their 4 week trial they may well decide the class they are trialling is not for them, and this is fine, so we have time to swap the class and find an alternative to make sure we find the class most suited to them.
We are currently rehearsing for our Main School Show on 21st April and our Lower School Show on 24th March in the majority of our classes (this includes students from Pre-School Classes upwards) and therefore between January and April some lessons may follow a slightly different structure to normal. Unfortunately as the sourcing and ordering of costumes is now well underway, anyone starting a trial now will be unable to take part in either of the Shows, however are still absolutely welcome to come along and join our SDSD family where they will be fully included in all lessons! Alternatively, if you would like to reserve a place for a trial after the show, please register now and just let us know in the comments section that you would like to start after the shows.
Please note that this does not apply to our Sophie Dee’s Baby Bees, Bopping Bees, Budding Bees and Buzzin Bees (Ages 1-2 and 2-3 Years) and trials for these classes are all running as normal as they are not part of our shows.
