REALLY?! Not sure if im the only one who can see it but it says Young Ambition Dance Co. Not Young Ambition Charity Co. Just cause your child is part of a dance company doesn't mean it's actually free unless it's an actual federally funded non-profit dance company which its not! A lot of times (the majority of the time) Children don't get paid to perform and if they do it ranges from like $100-$300 and when you divide it by all the performers and deduct any travel expenses... each kids ends up with roughly $20 bucks if they're lucky!!
Now as far as tuition, unless she's the only one in NYC who doesn't pay rent or utilities, tuition must get paid to keep the place functioning. Parents must pay for Shoes and costumes cause guess what... IT'S THEIR DARN KID WHO'S WEARING IT!! why should the director or the studio be held liable for the Parents choice in enrolling their kids in a luxurious sport... cause last i heard a parent is responsible to provide food and shelter... not dance classes! Therefore if You (Ms. Anonomous) can't afford it! try the parks dept for FREE ACTIVITIES!!
I am a parent whose child once was part of the company. Once I joined I realized what [they were asking of] parents. You not only end up paying for your childs tuition, but end of paying for their performance as well! Of course you have to buy the outfits, but you also have to commit to selling tickets for your childs performance!!! as well as extra fundraisers.... Do your homework. If you want your child to join a dance company, make sure you do your homework/research and place your child in a well known reputable company, not Young Ambition Company.
