AIR CANADA ROUGE

You are travelling on Air Canada Rouge, on a Boeing 767-300 ER (763).


There are no TVs on this flight.  In flight entertainment consist of wireless streaming of movies and more, direct to your personal electronic device iPad or phone.  If you do not have a device, you can RENT them on the plane.  


Power ports are between the seats in economy, not at every seat.  Be prepared to share (or better yet, bring a power bank of your own)- it's a long flight and you will want to stay charged!


*don't forget a credit card if you want to purchase anything while on the flight!

Our choreographers ALLAIN LUPIEN and team are excited to be a part of Team Canada Dance and lead your team to the podium!

IMPORTANT!

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.

Prague is calling!  My name is Barbora Guzdková and as organizer I'm very happy to see you at blog about WCH in Show dance. World Championship in show dance will be in Prague for second time, but first time under my direction. I’m very happy to have that oportunity to bring this event to Czech republic and have dancers from around the world in our country and our beautiful city. I remember when I won gold medal at WCH with our formation in 2010 and can't wait to see someone else being happy at competition what I’ll organize. As 100% IDO kid I promise, that I will do my best.

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.

A Choreographer's Creative Process in Real Time

A Choreographer's Creative Process in Real Time | Wayne McGregor | TED Talks


We all use our body on a daily basis, and yet few of us think about our physicality the way Wayne McGregor does. He demonstrates how a choreographer communicates ideas to an audience, working with two dancers to build phrases of dance, live and unscripted, on the TEDGlobal stage.
