    Default Whose child does dancing?

    Just curious as to how much it roughly costs for end of year concert?

    I am thinking some expenses might be:

    Costume $38 (I know this is the price)
    Concert tickets?
    DVD?

    Any other costs?

    Possible "tip" for teachers?

    I only have boys, but know a lot about this.

    You at lucky to get away with 38 dollars for costumes! Just check if she needs tights, new shoes, hair pieces, hair products/pieces.

    Otherwise you will just pay for tickets, DVD (if you want one), pro photos (if you want them).

    That is it I think!

    We have been charged for the dress rehearsal/s (because the venue had to be hired), professional photos, the program (can be anything from a few dollars and upwards if there are photos in it), contribution towards flowers for the Principal.....whatever you buy to eat/drink at intermission etc
    Can't think of anything else right now.

    Dd is 5 and her costumes are around $60 each. She has 4 dances this year.

    Concert tickets are $10ish each. Then there is glitter hairspray, makeup, new tights, shoes and or shoe paint, pins and hairnets. Um, what else...?

    I wouldn't tip the teacher but we sometimes buy a small gift.

    Default Re: Whose child does dancing?

    My dd is 10, her dance school has a mid year and end of year concert. We pay a costume fee of $15 per costume there is no costume making as we just hire costumes from studio. Concert tickets ar $15 adult professional pics are $10 if we want to buy them. We take snacks and drinks with us to eat at concert.
    I normally don't need to buy any extra stuff like shoes and stockings as these are requirements for normal classes, we have a dance makeup kit so its normally a one of expense that will last sometime.
    At end of year I buy a small box of chocs for her teacher but that's a personal choice.
    My dd does 8 hours a week, its a lot of running around through week, she loves it, and I do sometimes complain, but seeing her up on stage makes it all worthwhile, she does jazz level 5, jazz troupe, ballet level 4 and ballet level 6, cheerleading pom and cheerleading stunt and she also does a tumble class.
    What do your dd do???

    DS3 does tap and ballet. We have just paid the $30 admin fee for this year's show, as well as a $45 costume deposit. I expect to pay at least another $45 as he will be in two dances this year.

    Tickets are usually about $30 each from memory, so that will be $120 for us. The DVD is around $50 and the photos are 3 for $45.

    In the past I've needed to replace ballet shoes to get the correct colour, and there are always things like theatre knickers, spare socks, and hair gel.

    I buy his teachers a small Christmas gift, usually Crabtree & Evelyn cookies or the like. I would never tip them though. HTH!

    totally depends on the studio, 38 dollars is a low cost costume some can be hundreds of dollars and if they do say the 3 fundementals jaz tap and ballet you are looking at a minimal of 3 costumes then if they are in troupe you need another costume for troupe as they do there class and there troupe dance, then you have shoes and tights and wiglets and make up it can cost thousands

    DD is doing teeny tiny baby ballet. Well. Pre-school ballet. It's about $110 a term. Not sure what the concert costs are. Frankly I'm just looking forward to see a bunch of three and four year olds flit about in costume.

    My daughter has only started this term, I don't even know what kind of dancing she does as I don't stay. I think it's jazz and ballet, maybe tap. She's only 4, and I think it's only one dance at the concert.

    The cost doesn't bother me, but my friend whose daughter does it as well was wondering about the costs.
