FEES:

  • Partner Fees – Fee charged by the partner for a test or partner practice lesson. (The fee is not included on test form – skater will be charged at the time of practice or test)

Dance Practice w/ Partner:

We will do our best to accommodate each skater for partner practice.  We will use the priority system above to give skaters practice time. The amount of time awarded is given at the discretion of the Dance Partner and the BBFSC Test Chair.  Partner practice fees are based on a fee of $20.00/15 minutes paid to the test chair before your practice. (See Chart)

 

If you are testing a dance that is contingent, you will need to write a separate check for the contingent Dance test. Check will be given back to you if the lower level test is not passed. Checks are to be made out to the dance partner. 

 

Please make note of the partner fees listed.  Theses fees will be collected at the practice session and the checks will be made out to the Dance Partner.
