Let me start out with the most aggravating issue.
I paid (as well as the other dance moms) $75.00 for a recital costume. We were told to pay in January 2011. We were shown a picture of said costume.
When costumes arrived....May 25th 2011 (one week before recital) they are completely different and look to cost about $24.99. The earrings that came with it are so cheap; they are palstic clip ons that fell apart immeaditily! When looking through the Cataloge of the company they used ---A Wish Come True-- I noticed all the girls costumes were ordered from the "value section".  When I brought this up with the Director, Michelle Martin, she gave me a song and dance about how they have to pay for taxes and shipping. Well, the shipping is free if ordering more than 3k in merchandise; which the company clearly did. Not to mention the tax rate is 6%. 
I  called A Wish Come True and ask that they tell me how much said rectial costume actually cost. Their reply...." We don't owe you a price. We will not disclose that information". I asked ...Isn't there a code of ethics that you follow regarding companies grossly over charging for your ordered product? "NO" and hung up on me.
Now, It doesn't take a genuis to figure out the cost.....when looking through other companies who have similar cotumes, they are $29.99. That is a $45.00 dollar differenece.

Ok....so that's said, now onto the teachers. The teachers are 16  year old students who spend the entire class on their cell phone or chatting with their friends who came to visit. Or eating the take out they ordered.
No one seems to know what the heck is going on. They constantly have conflicting information.

To end this report....not only do they over charge for costumes but they do for shoes and tutition. Also...if you are late paying said tution you will face a whopping $25.00 late fee.

Look some where else for your little dancer; it will save you $$$$ and the headache of dealilng with this ridiculous company.
