This year my daughter's dance fees were $297 a term for 3 lessons. That includes a 10% discount for doing 3 classes.
It seems ok after reading what other people charge, but when I think that my son's footy was $25 registration for the year and $20 shorts and socks which he can use next year, dancing is bloody expensive. But my daughter loves it and it keeps her active so I just suck it up!

Little Ted I'm looking for the same kind of thing for my 4 year old. She loves ballet & ballerinas but I want to wait a little before structured lessons. This looks pretty good: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-...g-girl/227746/

A $500 joining fee is outrageous.
Our dance teacher has a 45 minute lesson for preschoolers - this is 15 minutes ballet, 15 minutes tap and 15 minutes of tap.
There is a uniform, but they don't have to have it. They need ballet and tap shoes, but just use the same shoes for ballet and jazz. They also need dance socks. You can purchase stockings, but they are really only needed for the concert.
Concerts and exam fees are extra.
From memory the lessons were around $12 a week.
There is also an annual insurance fee, we pay term one every year and I can't remember what it is - somewhere around the $50 mark.
ETA - I don't know of any ballet videos, but my DD used to have this book:
It outlined first position, second position etc. My DD used to love copying the moves set out in the book.

@BigRedV - You have an awesome soccer club. Our boys rego costs combined were over $300, so it must have been around the $150 mark - there was a slight saving for having more than one child participating. Then the shorts, shin pads, shoes and 2 x socks on top of that. I think they blame the extra costs on insurances? Sports were so much cheaper when we were little.
I must say thought that so far we haven't had to buy bigger shorts or socks. Our eldest will need larger shin pads next year though.

The fees are only $25 because it's u/6's. I think when he gets to u/7's it's $75 registration. This is rugby league, not soccer. Not sure if that's why but I do know that many of the local clubs charge the same. Maybe the nrl subsidises a lot of the fees?
