Master Jou, Tsung-Hwa Birthday Celebration and Tai Chi Festival 2023
There were doubts. There were concerns. But have no worries - we found a way!
This fabulous Tai Chi festival has been going on for over 20 years (and has a rich history prior to that - check out the History Page for more info).
But Bruce La Carrubba, our fabulous founder, the main mover and shaker, the one who did all the heaviest lifting, was not going to be able to make it back to New Jersey, and he was in no shape to spruce up his property in Wantage.
Those of us who have been helping Bruce for years contacted him with our concerns. We didn't want to do another on-line event. We wanted to meet again, in-person. Bruce agreed, and the organizing committee was born.
Of course, we didn't want to leave out all those people who had the benefit of attending on-line for these past couple of years. So we decided to do a hybrid festival. One of the four tracks of the in-person festival will be streamed on-line, allowing everyone the opportunity for those workshops. Additionally this allows us to invite workshop leaders from elsewhere (like Canada!) to stream in for the workshop as well. Keep in mind, these workshops are hybrid; there will be people in-person in the room at the same time that it is being streamed via Zoom into the homes of those who are attending on-line.
Of course, because those who are attending on-line don't get the same options and flexibility that in-person attenders have, the fee to register is much lower (only $60). (And no fair complaining that you wanted to see OTHER workshops. We did the best that we could in deciding which the workshops would come across the best for those who were on-line. It was a tough decision.)
