I am currently taking lessons at an AM studio and have a problem with the constant up selling. Whenever a showcase event comes along not only do they want me to participate but do all the dances sometimes twice, once at one level then at another, at $20 per dance this would run $400, just for the dances alone, add in the $185 for the dinner/dance ticket and it going to be over $600. Where does all this money go? It doesn't seem worth it. Is having my dancing assessed by yet another person really worth that extra cost? Shouldn't the studio already be doing that? Whenever these events come along it makes me wonder whether it is what is best for my dancing or the studio is just trying to make money. It also makes me question whether my instructor has my best interests or the studio's at heart which leaves a bad taste for the dance experience at AM?
