I don't know if you mean that literally or not ( I am not asking,) but I know people who have bankrupted themselves for dance. I would have, if I'd been single when I first started dancing, but I was married at the time and then-Husband had control of *some* of the money.
Later, I still dance but I was a single Mom and did't have the luxury of thinking only of my own pleasure.
Just *wait* until DS goes to college (which is already paid for.) It's gonna be on!!
To answer the OP in more positive terms, I've also enriched myself with many new friends and many, many irreplaceable experiences.
