There are additional costs associated with competitive dancing. First of all, students must take a minimum of three dance classes per week.
Secondly, student's costumes are more elaborate than recreational level costumes. They must be more durable and have original designs as part of a group's mark is based on their appearance. As a result the cost of a competitive costume is around $140.00- $225.00 per group.
Finally, there are competition entry fees which range from $50.00 to $55.00 per group, per competition. These fees will be collected once it is confirmed which competitions the studio will be attending usually early November. (Keep in mind that our studio does offer the chance to do fundraising throughout the year in order to subsidize the cost of competition ask Barb for more information).
