Here is the situation... We dance both independent and chain comps, chain of course being more expensive. (We are am's) The entry fee is the same for an AM couple as a pro-am, and I have accepted this if I want to do chain comps, which I do. This year now in addition to entry fee and ballroom entrance fee there is a $166 fee per session which I assume is for the instructor. Well, we dont dance with the instructor and in fact are often on the floor the same time our instructor is dancing pro-am. So now for two of us this is an additional $300 a session, while a single pro-am will pay half of our cost and dance with the instructor. Do you think it is reasonable for me to ask them to waive this fee, or at least charge it only once for husband and myself? This one added cost that would push me over the edge and could be the deal breaker for us to no longer do chain comps... I just feel it is unfair to us, and we are being penalized for being an AM when in fact we are so easy!!... They dont have to juggle how to fit us in with an instructors heats, they can put us just about anywhere in our categories. Welcome any thoughts on this. I dont want to be a jerk about this!
