I visited several dancesports web sites, such as the 2018 New England Dancesports Championships, and I only see entry fees mentioned.
There is no mention of any prizes. What are the prizes? Are dance competitions just for flowers and trophies?

The dance competition you linked to is an amateur competition. However, there are professional dance competitions with prize money, such as the United States Dance Championships.
