How do you feel about the cost of dance classes for children?

It's $50 a month for jazz, ballet, hip-hop. One day a week for an hour. Then tumbling one day a week for 40 minutes is also $50 a month.


I have two girls so I get a discount at both places but that's what it is for one

 That just seems crazy to me.. is the jazz, ballet and hip hop a combo class or 1 hour each?

My niece did dance lessons it was $50 a month for one class per week plus cost of the costume which is roughly $80 -100 . You buy the costume at rectical time.

Before my dd started doing competative dance, she took one class a week. The class lasted 45 minutes, I believe I paid about 70 a month, August - June. That didn't include a recital fee of $85 and recital costumes, which were $65 each. DD was in a ballet/tap combo class, so I had to buy 2 costumes. The recital was optional, but everyone pretty much does it because they practice the dance in class.

My dd does competitive dance and is at the studio 4 days a week, for about an hour each time. If you only do technique classes, it is not that expensive, but I will warn you now, it is very expensive once you get to the competitive level. I pay about 130 a month for tuition, but that does not include any of the choreographer fees, costumes, or competition fees.

I used to be a part time dance teacher, and for an hour of ballet a week it was $55 a month, but for 7 days a week it was $234. It all just depended on how many days a week you wanted.

$65.00 for registration. $75 a month for ballet, tap and jazz (one class that lasts 1.5 hours long) and hip hop (another class that is an hour long). 

We were going to put her in baton as well but she's only 6 and that's too much.
