My studio's recital policy is annoying. My studio is huge and crowded so everything is expensive. Our costumes cost $88 each, recital tickets cost like $18 dollars and you don't even get to watch any recitals unless you buy a ticket. Our studio has six recitals, but each class only performs once. So I know nothing of this "multiple performance per class" business.
But even if you choose to opt out of the recitals, you're pretty much screwed because we work on the recital routine for several months beforehand and you'll be bored the whole class. And you can't drop out of the classes because most classes fill up and if you drop out there's a good chance you won't be getting back in.
Ergh.I love performing in the recitals though. Which is kind of the point I guess. Wish me luck.
@Abby-Everyone in your studio wears tights all the time? Ooh.
