    Default Re: Whose child does dancing?

    Maybe ask the dance school, most schools are up front with thus info. My dd started dancing in prep doing 1 class now grade 4 increased to 7 I'm a sucker and dd is an only child.

    I'm like that though and DD definitely isn't an only child. She does 4 now (would be 5 but we can't get there in time for the extra one) and I am sure she will be doing loads in a couple of years (she's 5 and this will be her 4th concert.) When you see they love something so much it's hard not to encourage them

    Yeh, see, I'm not convinced my daughter loves it, she just loves playing with her 2 friends that go

    DD (aged 7) just had her Jazz dance Concert last weekend. Besides the weekly lessons ($9.35) we paid the following specifically for the concert:

    Rehearsal at venue $11
    DVD $32
    Professional photo (4x6) $2.50 each (6 variations taken)
    Adult ticket to concert $18.70 each (needed 4 = $74.80)
    Jazz Costume $55
    Finale Costume $55

    In addition to costumes I had to purchase:
    Makeup (colours I didn't use ie white eyeshadow, red lipstick, foundation to match her skin), dark blue (almost black) jeans for finale (her jeans weren't dark enough apparently), white sandshoes, dance tights, hair net. Everything else I had.

    Default Whose child does dancing?

    My DD is on her fifth year dancing and is currently doing jazz, hip hop an contemporary.

    For concerts we usually pay;
    $20-$30/costume hire (get about $5 back despite dance school owning all costumes)
    $20/ticket (and this year she's in 2 concerts, yay)
    $15 for jazz tights
    $30 for feet undies (for contemporary)
    Then usually another $30-$50 in little extras such as new volleys for hip hop, backstage snacks, hair accessories etc.

    It ends up costing a fortune! But she loves it so somehow I make it work.

    Oh plus $30/week in lessons, $30/year admin fee and Jazz exams, which also require a full black jazz outfit including shoes (yet school requires tan for concert).

    Default Whose child does dancing?

    DD1 does pre-school ballet (3rd year of it)

    Our costs are
    $110 per term
    $30 per year registration fee which includes tutu, wrap and stockings.
    $80 concert fee - includes full ready to wear costume, accessories and new dance stockings.
    $18 tickets to concert
    $25 dvd of concert

    Im pretty happy as they tend to bundle it altogether rather than have hidden costs.
    And its no make-up for concert just glitter hairspray.
    A friends daughter goes elsewhere and they pay $70 for costume and then only get given the material that they have to sew themselves!

    I notice that everyone has stated cost of dvd, is it a requirement to buy? We also have a dvd, we always group together one buys it and we all chip in some money and just copy it saves some money.

    No, we don't have to buy the DVD. I wouldn't feel right copying ours though; they're produced by a small local company who I'd hate to rip off.
