Travel dates are pending confirmation from Miss Dance/Drill Team Japan. The competition will take place August 9-11. We are working with the airline and travel agent now to finalize the travel dates and itinerary. The tentative itinerary is as follows:
Day 1 - Rehearsals at Richardson Renaissance Hotel (Dallas)Day 2 - Depart for Osaka, Japan (DFW to Tokyo/Tokyo to Osaka)Day 3 - Arrive and check into hotel in OsakaDay 4 - Sightseeing in KyotoDay 5 - Rehearsal at contest siteDays 6/7 - Performances at Miss Drill Team Japan CompetitionDay 8 - Universal Studios JapanDay 9 - Fly home (Osaka to Tokyo/Tokyo to DFW)
We are wanting to do a special selection of the most talented dancers in the state. The team size is limited so we are asking for dancers that would be an asset to this great performance team. The dancer would need to be very mature and responsible as they will be ambassadors representing American Dance/Drill Team as well as Texas and the United States🇺🇸. They would need to be skilled in multiple genres: beautiful high kicks, advanced jazz technique, and exceptional dance skills of every style.
As of now, we have an estimated cost of the trip that would include round trip air fare (DFW to Tokyo Narita and short flight to Osaka), hotel rooms (2-3 to a room), most meals, sight seeing, ground transportation in Osaka, costuming, and two ADTS Staff Chaperones. Until we deposit, we will not know the exact amount. The total package will be approximately $3500 per dancer. We will need a $500 deposit for the trip no later than February 15th. The team is limited to 20 dancers. Dancers must be 16-19 years of age at the time of travel. Please submit your application as soon as possible. There are limited spots available for this elite performance group. You will be notified via email if you have been selected for the trip.
