** 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.
WHAT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE:
Parents have the option to make their own travel arrangements and travel on their own, however, dancers must travel with the team for flight and hotel. Please see TRAVEL OPTIONS section
WHAT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE:
*admission to each World Championships is set by the organizer of that Championship. Admission cost will be available at a later date when it is released.
Once accepted to the team, we require a $200 deposit to secure your position.
If you are paying via the Registration Portal, there is a 1% service charge that will be added to your first payment only.

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)

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.

Professional tap dancer and TED Fellow Andrew Nemr taps into the history of this truly American art form. Lesson by Andrew Nemr, produced by TED-Ed.
