I'm doing Latin the night before and then I'm done - so if you guys need a ride or something, don't know where you're staying...
I don't know where we're staying either. :) We're travelling with a group from Madison (UW collegiate team) and someone else is taking care of the details. Do you know what color costume you'll wearing so we can cheer for you?

If you want to meet up after you're done competing, just look for the group of people wearing black & red jackets.

Pardon me, but maybe you folks should simply trade cell #s by private message?

I am wondering about the price for a pro/am comp, it's $1600 which includes 2 nights of hotel (sharing room with another student), all meals during the stay, entry to ballroom for my session and evening sessions, all fees for my teacher ($375 plus $10 per dance), entry to 2 scholarships and 5 single dances and my airfare. Is this more or less in the "normal" range? or does this sound expensive for a typical pro/am comp? And how does the "teacher's fee" part sound?

thanks :)

**asking, because I have never been on a package before for comps.

sounds about right to me...it is average...your pros price is cheap...be happy...that what mine charges too and it is a steal....I have done three comps so far and just paid for my 4th and they have ranged between $9000 and $3000 depending upon accomodations and heats danced etc....but when I do my yearly dance budget...I figure $1500 per comp

The cost of comps is one of the main reasons I spend more time in the studio, and less time on the road. Here in Atlanta we are starting a competition circuit that is only open to schools and students from Georgia, and the cost of heats is $10, and championships $25. I intend to do several of these, and then a couple of comps out of state.

Hopefully, my income will increase to the point where we can do more out of state comps, as I would love to travel and meet more DFers! :)
