The Hotel I stayed at at Blackool in the U.K.. The Managers wife worked as a receptionist at a Heath Spa where many of the dancers went to to use the Tanning Rooms. She said to me
" You Ballroom Dancers seem to be fairly wealthy people with the amount of diamond rings
and Gold Rolex wrist watches I keep seeing as well as expensive handbags and clothing shoes ect".

That is an obscene amount of money and I would not pay it without a breakdown of expenses. What you are paying for is the instructor's loss of income for that day, her room and meals, her fee for dancing with you, her hair appointment and incidentals. Except for the fees, all other costs should be divided up between the students she is dancing with. The studio must take a cut, which is just wrong in my opinion. Don't blindly pay, ask questions.

$60 an entry for FADS competitions! That's quite high. I'm with FADS in Canada and, unless they increased the price, our entries are 45$ each. I'll have to double check.
