  • Can I have a tour without any performances?
    Yes. You can have a purely educational tour focusing on learning opportunities for you dancers. These types of tours do not require an audition.
  • When does my tour price become locked in?
    Your trip price becomes locked in when you receive your Final balance invoice. This is because flight taxes and currency exchange rates are constantly changing. Tour price must be locked in as an entire group and cannot be locked in for individuals prior to the final balance invoice.
  • Do I need to tip on tour in the USA?
    Yes and No. We have included the cost of tipping your local tour guides and bus drivers etc. in your tour package, however there are some instances in which you will be expected to tip while you are on tour. When you eat at a sit down restaurant you would tip your server and you would tip the staff who clean your hotel room, a Taxi or an Uber Driver etc. Tipping is customary in the USA and tipping percentages range from 15-20% based on the level of service provided.
  • Does my rooming configuration effect the cost of my tour?
    Yes. Our Tours are based off of Quad share pricing meaning you are in a room with 4 people and receiving the best price available. If you would like to have a single, twin or triple room, we can adjust the price accordingly to accommodate your rooming request. Please note that all room sharing is decided by the Studio Director. All bedding in rooms is 2 Queen size beds so if you are in a Quad Room you are sharing a bed.

  • Do I need to pay for my trip upfront?
    No. We ask for a deposit per person to lock in your tour and then a second deposit is due 4months prior to travel and Final balance is normally due 6weeks prior to travel. You can also setup a direct debit payment plan to pay off your trip if this suits you better
  • Can you extend your trip?
    Yes. We are able to extend all dancers and their families flights at their request upon completion of their tour should they wish to do some more travel. Due to the studios rehearsal schedule prior to the trip, trip extensions are only available post tour.
  • Will there be any free time on tour?
    All of our tours have a great balance of scheduled activities and free time. While all of our tours include some free time for dancers and their families to get out on their own and explore, sometimes this will be an entire day, other times it will be a morning, afternoon or evening. This will depend on availability for your dance experiences and which days the events fall on. The great news is all of our tours are customisable so if a free day is important to you we can always add in an extra one or two, or three, or four. The choice is yours!
