$200 !!! for 2 costumes for 2 5 minute routines in RECREATIONAL dance. This is not competitive dance. I was floored, as were most of the parents. They told us costumes had gone up this year. I'm thinking they are full of shit. These are not extravagant costumes...(pics in comments).
Is there any way to find this costumes online to see how much they really are? I want to know if the studio is adding their own charge to it.
THEN, they tell us to go back and reread our contracts because it says we agreed to pay $50 each for a video of the recital. Fuck that.
So, I'm really debating right now about just pulling her. I would HATE to do that, I don't ever want her to quit in the middle of something but wow. And she does like it while she's there but she doesn't talk about it or ask to go in between classes.
