Paying teachers way for comp Posted by jwf597saw 7/22/2011 8:11:00 AM
My wife and I have been dancing for 3 years under the same teacher. We entered our first comp locally last year and paid our teacher's expenses to attend. This year we are considering an out of town comp and the subject of including our teacher has naturally come up. Since it's out of town, the expenses are considerably more. On one hand, I view our dancing as a team effort with our teacher's extensive involvement in lessons, costume & routines advice. Of course were capable of doing the comp by ourselves, we're just not sure if this is a standard practice in the industry. Our teacher states it is but has only had one other couple before us pursue competitions.
I was hoping others might share their thoughts or experience in this?
