This includes all rehearsals from November through April and one competition costume. All competition entry fees, travel expenses, dance shoes/accessories make up etc. will be additional expenses. (competition entry fees are around $30-$50 per routine and will be due 8 weeks prior to competitions). If students are in more than one routine each additional costume will cost between $50 and $70.
