This depends on what type of costume you are talking about. Most small studios order pre made costumes that normally cost around $80. On the other hand, professional, custom fitted tutus may cost up to $2500. This high cost depends on how many layers of tulle the tutu has and how much detailing the top of the tutu has. These tutus are often bought by Ballet students in pre-professional ballet academies and youth ballet dancers that compete in competitions like PRIX and such that get you noticed by the ballet companies. Once ballet dancers get excepted into a company, all the costumes are re-worn and fitted to each dancer. The dancers pay no money for the costumes because they are owned by the company and they only wear them for performances.
