The Ballet recital, a necessary evil, and perhaps the biggest scheme to separate you from your $$$.
Dance classes, $130 quarterly,
Recital costume, $65,
Recital fee, $55,
Photo of child in recital costume, at least $30,
Flowers for child on recital day, market price,
Potential need to bribe said child with a toy if she refuses to wear the costume on recital day,$ to be determined,
Seeing your child and the 4 other girls in her class all dancing to their own beat, priceless !
