IBA TRAVEL:
Why we go…

Europe Announcements:

NOVEMBER 1 $500 Deposit Due 

IMPORTANT: For parents/family members who cannot stay the entire trip, you can opt out of the England week. This will reduce the trip by 7 days and $800. We fully understand that the whole trip may be too long for some parents or family members to be away from employment or other responsibilities. We hope this will help with that issue. Those choosing this option will fly home from Munich. 

 

Dancers must stay for the entire trip, both the “Europe” (Prague, Paris, Munich) and “England” portions. We are hoping to perform in England in both Preston and London and so we will need all of the dancers for that.

EUROPE FAQ 2017

 

1.  Who is eligible to go?    Dancers 9th – 12th grades.  Any dancer not traveling with a parent or family member will be assigned to an adult. We consider the adults who travel with us our assistant “shepherds” and they will have a few sheep, beside their own, assigned to them.

 

NOTE:  8th graders who are dancing up to Jr 9 can go if accompanied by a parent.

 

2.  Can Parents go?  Yes, we usually have a large group of parents, grandparents, siblings, etc.

 

3.  When is the trip?  July 16 - Aug. 3

 

4. When are the practices for the dancers? The festival team/s will practice in May – July. We haven’t yet determined the schedule. It may be twice a week depending on the amount of material to be learned.

 

5.  What do we do?  See itinerary. 

 

6.  How much does it cost?  Ballpark: $3500

The final cost depends on airfare and currency exchange rates. The only cost in US Dollars is the airfare. Everything else is in Euros or British Pounds.  It is expected that the exchange rate will go up in the coming months, so that will increase the cost. But how much it will go up is impossible to predict.

           

7. What is included in the cost:  Everything except lunch/dinner and souvenirs.

Includes: airfare, ground travel, hotel w/ breakfast, all admissions as group, festival fees.

 

8. When do we have to decide?  Nov 1.   There will be a commitment form and deposit due.

 

9. Do we need a passport? YES. We’ll send details of where/how to apply.

    Adult passports (age 16+) are $110. Child passports are $80.

 

10. How much should we plan on for meals? Minimum $15/day, average $20. There is fast food everywhere (McD, Subway), markets (bread, cheese, fruit), and local fare restaurants. We don’t eat as a group, so everyone will be in control of their food budget.

 

11. Hotel rooming assignments: In Prague, the dancers will all stay together in rooms arranged by the festival. The rest of our group will stay in the same hotel as the dancers. Parents will be roomed together as efficiently as possible: married couples in their own room, moms will room together. Other family members will stay together as requested.

 

In Munich, Preston, London, the dancers can room with parents if desired, or with other parent-dancer sets such as two mother/daughter set together. The hotels will have varied rooms, such as doubles, triples, quads. Some rooms cost more than others, but we will equalize the hotel cost unless there is a special request for a larger room.
