A wonderful article from a great friend of mine.
In doing the comparison locally, my daughter dances at Bartlett Dance Factory, through Singleton. It costs $40/month per class. I just spent $85 on shoes for two classes, and will spend about $150-$200 this year on costumes and recital.
Gymnastics at River City is $50/yr registration, plus $63/month, with an ongoing contract, two week notice required to leave the contract. This is for recreationa,, not competitive
Kindermusik at the University of Memphis is $182 for 12 weeks, plus a $25 registration fee for a total of $207, with all materials included as Christa outlined.
