Hopefully there will be a good amount of competitors.  The bigger the fields the better.

A great place to compare the strength of competitions (with respect to AM and pro anyway, not pro/am) is to look them up on dancesportinfo (we have a topic on that too).  They have a competition ranking.

On there the crystal leaf ranks well below the Classique which is about on a par with the Snowball (BC) and below Kingston.  However, with respect to pro/am the classique has to be the top ranked. 

Crystal leaf was one of the first Canadian comps to put the pro/am open events in the evening - up till then pro-am was just regarded as a non-dance event mostly to get the money for 'real' dancers to attend... (sorry if that sounds brutal but I think it is true, and some of this attitude persists).

As I recall, CL was stronger at the syllabus levels of pro-am and weak at the top levels - but maybe all those dancers are now in open Smiley

Want to say thank you for that info Elise, very helpful and interesting. I'm not in the top ranking, I think I will be dancing during the day at Crystal Leaf. I'm not there yet. I have hope.

I wasted a lot of time till I found the right teacher/Pro for me. Not as as I thought it should/would be.

Will checkout the other section/topic too.

The floor is very long, more than most so take that into consideration for your routines.  The floor is usually slow too since they have not had the concept of cleaning it well before the comp come into play yet.  Either than that this is a good competition and I have to give it to the orgainzers for working hard to make it run smoothly and with class.  I think this comp will even get better in the future if the politics are kept on the sidelines.

Thank you for the info Rugby.

May I ask someone, for Pro/Am how much is a single dance entry?

Forget Pro fees or studio fees, I got that, but I can't see the entry fees.

I see the entry tix prices etc but not the Pro/|Am single dances.

La Classique was $30/dance plus all the extra. Is Crystal Leaf the same?

I hope they are not doing that old trick - to not post the entry fees to the AMs so that the pros can add a markup Sad

I really don't think they would - let me check later (gotta run).

My teacher and the lady who runs the school was on the website and couldn't find any prices either.

They left messages, but I was hopeing to find out sooner rather than later as I won't hear from them till next week and I want to get my finances in order.

But I don't think there are any Pro/Am prices if they couldn't find it either.

Oh well thanks anyway.

If you know what last year was that would be helpful too it will at least give me a gustimate?

thanks

I have contacted the organizers directly.  Hopefully, they will let us know.

thank you.

That is most appreciated. I don't think my school will inflate as I already have a price for my Pro.   They break everything down anyway for me.  I was just trying to get my fiances in order as I have to pay next wednesday and i have no clue. His fees and stuff I can pay the week before so no worries but I have to give entry fees and ticket fees next week.

The tix alone are expensive. I need 3 entry tix so alone that is $600. Not a bargain for sure. But I'm happy to go

I hope we will be meeting up

I have been unable to get the entry price from the competition organizers thus far (still hoping) but an anonymous source puts the price for a single dance at 35$.

However, I have no way to check that so take it for what its worth.

We have decided not to go to the Crysat Leaf after all.  When I was adding up the costs it was way too much for us at this time, especially since I am out of work.   By the time we pay the travel costs, hotel, food, competition costs ($320.00 alone) we will be way over $500 if we eat cheap.  If we were more competitive maybe, but right now we don't consider ourselves to be at this point, so it will cost more than it is worth.  Hopefully next year as I do like this competition.
