Trull School Of Dancing
Frequently Asked Questions
Do we stay and watch?
You're welcome to stay and watch for the first lesson or the first 10 mins of a lesson whilst your child settles, but generally parents dont watch classes. We find that the children are easily distracted from the teaching and find it harder to concentrate.
How & when do we pay
Fee's should be paid termly before the beginning of each new term or on the first lesson back. If you join part way through a term you pay at the first class for the remainder of that term. If your child does 3 lessons per week or more you may pay in 2 installments. Half of the fees at the beginning of term and the remainder at half term.
We take cheques or cash, or ideally by bank transfer.
Do the children take dance exams and perform in shows
We do exams every year for those who wish to and are ready. Modern exams are held in December, Tap exams in April, Ballet exams in July. This ensures that the exams are evenly spread out for the children studying all 3 disciplines. To keep exam continuity for the children to be able to work their way up through the grades quicker, we put on a show every 3 years. The shows we do are very large productions and gives the students vital experience on a stage.
All our teachersare highly qualified and attend regular courses to keep up to date with all developments.
All our teachers are also D.B.S checked, however this is not yet a legal requirement. Here at Trull School Of Dancing we like you as a parent to know that we take child safety and protection very seriously.
Are all teachers qualified and D.B.S. (police) checked?
For your first FREE trial session pupils need to wear something comfortable like a tracksuit / trainers. If you enjoy the class and join our school we have a set uniform which is availble from our uniform shop at North Street Church hall or through our website on the shop page via PayPal.
What do I wear for the trial session, is there a set uniform?
No, we always do our very best to keep students in similar age groups. Some newcomers find it useful to take advantage of private lessons where we can develop an individuals skills.
If I'm a teenager who has never danced before or with very little previous training would I have to start with the very young children?
