ADC in August and other help

i just sent in my application for the 3rd session of this year's ADC. although i am glad to be able to send it, it was definitely painful when i had to pay for the bank draft :thumbsup: . has anyone already confirmed their attendance for the camp?

 

being from the other side of the world and travelling to the States for the first time by myself, i'm a little apprehensive about the practical aspects of the trip, like the best way to get from the airport to the hotel and domestic flight plans. would a kind soul offer me some advice?

 

i'm also planning to stay a week in New York after the camp, so i would appreciate if anyone could advise me practical tips on visiting New York (besides the important details on dance shops/studios! :() thanks!

I haven't sent in my form yet, but i am planning to attend the first August session. Last year, I just took a taxi from the airport to the hotel, and I think it was about $20. As for domestic flights, I tend to look at travelocity's website, but sometimes American has it cheaper on their own website. The only problem I have experienced is that most of the time, they won't let you book a domestic air ticket with a credit card that has an overseas address (this is VERY annoying). Once you get to the hotel, it is all pretty easy to deal with.

 

You will have a great time!

Once you get used to it, I've found that travelling in the States is quite easy. The Net is your friend - check for an airport transport bus to the hotel. Use the airport website to be directed to transport links. You can phone ahead, or just make a beeline for the ground transport information desk.

 

And then New York!! Wonderful city, and there's been lots of sharing of information in the Adult Students fora. You might try a search of Cross Talk as well. Here are some threads from the Adult Students fora.

Looking for info -- classes in NYC

 

Lampwick has extensive knowledge of classes in NYC, as do Ashat, Garyecht, Citibob, and I think Shulie has visited & taken clas, so she can tell you what it's like as a short-term visitor. I've done that too, and taken class at Steps and Peridance (I preferred Steps!).

 

But aaah, New York! have a great trip.
