To get in on this offer, contact Melissa @  canadaworlddance@gmail.com


 

*you can see the shoes on their website www.tapshoescanada.com

Black Jazz Tap Masters

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.

CUSTOM

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)

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.

  • 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!
