    When signing up for dance lessons, be aware that studios may have some other fees like a registration fees, costume fees (recital costumes are custom made so they are expensive (around $60-$80) and ordered months in advance),  ticket for the shows because they rented out a larger venue to accommodate parents and relatives, DVDs of the show and of course the beautiful photos that you see on Facebook! 

    *Tip:  If you need to call a studio to speak to them about classes, try calling in the late afternoon or early evening.
