Tap, Ballet are at this time of year pretty much warm up and recital dance. Ours is done at a HS auditorium and tickets are typically 17-20 per person (and dancers if they watch have to pay too). Our costumes are about 75-80 per class.. (and then comp costumes vary depending on what's chosen). This sounds a lot like our studio, except dancers don't generally watch the other dances; they are kept in the dressing room until it's their turn. Moms get a wristband that allows them in and out of the auditorium and dressing room (we currently have no boys at our studio).

I started this thread a while ago - wow their spring performance is definitely not a recital. It's a full fledged show, and they are getting important experience through the full tech week without parental assistance backstage. Turns out I really like this approach!
