PASSPORTS

** YOU MUST HAVE A VALID PASSPORT THAT DOES NOT EXPIRE WITHIN 6 MONTHS OF TRAVEL DATES.

I cannot stress this point enough.  Numerous past participants have tried to travel with either a passport that will expire within the 6 months, or already expired!  These dancers/parents were turned away at the airport.  Don't let this happen to you!  This is YOUR responsibility, not ours or the airline booking our tickets.  We try to remind people to renew passports but we cannot do it for you.  You will have to buy another airline ticket if you fail to get on with the rest of the team.

TRAVEL OPTIONS

  • Dancers MUST travel with the team
  • You cannot use ‘travel points’ for World Championships- sorry, we cannot arrange that with the airline
  • Parents/guardians/siblings/friends may travel WITH the team at a lower cost than dancer. See travel form for cost
  • If parents want to travel ON THEIR OWN, they are responsible for their own flights, hotel and ground transportation. Please, DO NOT ask me to help with those arrangements – I am not the travel agent. I can only submit the dancers and those travelling WITH the team. You will not likely be able to book a room at the same hotel as the team as you will not be on the list that is sent to the organizer. These lists are submitted well in advance of travel and other countries competing are also trying to book rooms. I am sure you will able to find a smaller hotel nearby.
  • TEAM TRAVEL will depart 2 days prior to competition and return 1 day after.
  • EXTENDED STAY option will depart with the Team Travel 2 days prior to competition and return 1 week after competition.  If you select this option, you will be responsible for your own arrangements during that extra week.  You can go and see whatever you want!  It's a great option for a family holiday!

(usually day of competition or night before).  


Please note that they do charge for livestream.  For a 10 day access, it cost 150 PLN (roughly $52 CAD).  This is the most pricey plan, there are many cheaper.

The physics of the "hardest move" in ballet - Arleen Sugano

View full lesson: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-physics-of-the-hardest-move-in-ballet-arleen-sugano


In the third act of "Swan Lake", the Black Swan pulls off a seemingly endless series of turns, bobbing up and down on one pointed foot and spinning around and around and around ... thirty-two times. How is this move — which is called a fouetté — even possible? Arleen Sugano unravels the physics of this famous ballet move.   Lesson by Arlene Sugano, animation by Dancing Line Productions.
