Is transportation provided to and from campus from the airport?
GIV provides shuttle service for dancers arriving by plane, train or bus. You can select shuttle service when you register, or can log back into your account to add shuttle service once your travel plans are made. Completing the transportation/shuttle section of the registration form is THE ONLY WAY to request transportation assistance. No form - no shuttle service.

This fee covers the extra staff person we provide to meet the dancer at their gate upon arrival, and to accompany them on their return until their flight departs. Fee is higher for departures as the wait time at the gate with the dancer is usually two hours or more.
Parents need to familiarize themselves with airline policies regarding unaccompanied minors as they vary from airline to airline.
FLIGHT CANCELLATION OR DELAY
PARENTS MUST CHECK IN WITH THE AIRLINES PRIOR TO THEIR DEPARTURE FLIGHT FROM BRADLEY AIRPORT TO MAKE SURE THE DANCER'S FLIGHT HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED. G4 personnel will not be checking flights to make sure there are no changes or delays. PARENTS AND/OR DANCERS MUST DO THIS. If a flight is cancelled or delayed, a parent MUST NOTIFY the transportation coordinators and their dancer ASAP.
