    Heck, smack a logo on their shirts. How much is it to go to this national competition? I have no problem with their going, I have a problem with their trying to justify themselves by equating them to the basketball team. Do they even have scholarships? They aren't listed with the sports on gomason.com.

    Cost of going... Just using my knowledge of going to Disney World quite often. Basing this on 40 people, Students (dance team's) + coaches Airfare: $220 Round trip x 40 = $8800 / Hotel on Disney property (value resort) $90 per night (5 nights) x 20 rooms $9000. There are other costs included with competing im sure. Dont know if they "give" the dace teams tickets to the parks. for one day. They may be included with the logging package. either way you are looking at roughly $20k or so. Maybe more or less but i think this is a good number to base things on.

    Do they recoup any expenses by getting into the top 5 or winning the competition, I wonder? It's not an NCAA sanctioned event, so they don't get money from the NCAA to compete.
