Performances are very costly for any dance school and most schools sell costumes at a significant markup to cover those costs (typically $150 or more per costume). BBT approaches this differently. We rent, rather than buy or sell, very elaborate costumes and we charge participation fees to pay for the costume rentals, theater rental for rehearsal and performance times, as well as staffing costs for lighting and sound technicians, a wardrobe supervisor, wardrobe attendants and backstage assistants who help children change, supervise younger students as they come on and off stage, and troubleshoot last-minute issues. We keep our participation fees very moderate, typically ranging from $75 for one dance to a maximum of approximately $200 for a student who is performing five or six dances.
