Duets ~ approximately $40-$60 per dancer/ per dance / per competition

Groups ~ approximately $30-$50 per dancer/ per dance / per competition

* Additional costume expenses ~ we try very hard to stick within our budget, however sometimes this is not possible.  Competition Costumes contain purchased items from catalogs or stores.  Balances on kept items will be billed to the dancer accounts once the final orders have arrived in March.  Festival classes are costume rentals and must be returned.  Please note that our costuming is done in a way to alleviate potential expenses of an additional $130 per costume.

* Parking – some competition facilities have paid parking

* Spectator Fees – some competitions charge an admission fee or a program fee

* Most competitions provide a professional photographer / videographer with photos and videos available for purchase.  Please note personal photos and videos are not permitted to be taken in theatres.  Do to copyright,  studios can be fined and / or disqualified from the competition if caught filming or posting on Facebook or other social media sites.  Spectators from CDL who cause any type of disqualification to our students will be responsible for the reimbursement of their competition entry fees.
