PASSPORTS

image11

** 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

  • Parents/guardians/siblings/friends may travel WITH the team if you are travelling with the team ONLY.  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 – We are not the travel agent.  We 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.  Nov. 24-Dec. 1  (Dec.8 extended)
  • 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!

Dear Team Canada, Kim and Lisa

I just wanted bring you up to speed on Team Canada discounts, deadlines etc.
As per my discussion with Melissa, I am pleased to offer the following discounts to all Team Canada Members. Please share with anyone and everyone on your teams.
Black Jazz Tap Masters (always available)
Regular pricing = $389.38 + tax = $440 (including taxes & taps installed)Team Canada Price = $395.50 (including taxes & taps installed)

Custom Shoes (***New Extended Deadline of Sunday, September 1 - Delivered early November)
Regular pricing = $420.35 + tax = $475Team Canada Price = $425 (including taxes & taps installed)
Payment can be made by Etransfer to this address.
My goal since taking over the distribution in Canada is to make this shoe as affordable for Canadians as possible and to make them more affordable than ordering from NY directly. After tap installation, duties, taxes, shipping, exchanges & credit card charges - if you were to order these shoes from NY directly, they would cost about $500 (CAD) for Black JTM and about $600 (CAD) for Custom - delivered to your door.






For the team that meets in Toronto, I am happy to personally fit the team from my home (12 minutes away) or come in to TDC with sizers to fit a group.  For the team that meets in Calgary, I shipped a box of sizers ranging from size 36 - 42.5 care of team member Harrison Gietz. This shipment is scheduled to arrive in his possession on August 16. I’m hoping that interested members can arrange to try on the shoes before the deadline (if they are ordering custom). For those that wish to buy the black pairs, they can simply keep the ones they want. If I need to ship out duplicate sizes, narrow or wide options, I am happy to do so. If you happen to have any Team Members in the Vancouver region, I will be there for the final week of August and can arrange to personally fit them.   We are honoured to be able to offer this deal to Team Canada. Kerry travelled with Team Canada and it is one of her most treasured memories during her competitive career. Please share this information with your teams. If you (or they) have any questions.  

Best,
