Our regular black Jazz Tap Masters are the best shoes in the business. We would be prepared to offer any of your team mates $50 off. They are regular $389.38 + tax = $440. We would be willing to let any of your team members buy them for $390 (tax included with taps installed). This is a courtesy we’ve offered to no other group.
Our custom shoes are $420.34 + tax = $475 (tax included with taps installed)
We would be willing to offer a group order these shoes for $400 (tax included with the taps installed) custom designed. In addition, we will give each of your team members one of our Tap Shoe Repair kits. This offer has a $95 value for them.
Here’s an example of what I was thinking (red) but black is also available)

** 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.
PLEASE SEE FINANCIAL COMMITMENT FORM FOR AMOUNT DUE.
**THERE IS A 3% CHARGE FOR USING PAYPAL - SORRY, WE CANNOT CHANGE THAT.
WHAT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE:
JUNE JULY AUGUST
*can be separate or combined with parent/chaperone payments
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 below.

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.
