Re: how much do competitions cost? Posted by Anonymous 2/11/2007 12:36:00 PM
High level Amateur competition can be more expensive than Pro Am. A good competition teacher will cost $100 a hour or more. You will have to have more lessons for both of you to be competitive. This is the main expense of Amateur dancing if you are trying to get good. You could easily take 3 to 5 or more lessons a week. You need someone for choreograpy, technique, general couple coaching, and maybe a psychology couple dance coach. Plus you get lots of frustation with who's right-wrong or not progressing accordingly.
