Continuing the Connection: 2021 T’ai Chi Chih Teacher Conference

June 24th-27th, 2021

Held Virtually on Zoom

CONTINUING THE CONNECTION is our theme for 2021, as we come together to share our Chi in a virtual conference. As in past conferences we will have daily practices, presentations, breakout sessions and interaction with others in small groups. Conference sessions will begin Thursday morning and go through Sunday afternoon (Mountain Time). NOTE: You do not need a Zoom account to attend the conference.

Please register early! Teacher registration opens February 15. If you sign up to be a volunteer or presenter, your information will be transferred automatically for registration and you don’t need to fill out the registration form separately.

DEADLINE for early registration is March 15 (registration and scholarship application forms completed and full payment of $160). Early registration saves you $40 and helps us to plan ahead for our technical needs.

Teachers requesting a first-come, first-served scholarship up to $100 must complete the scholarship application form. It’s best to apply for a scholarship before or right after completing your registration. Don’t wait; the last date to apply is May 15!

NOTE: Teachers outside the U.S. and those accredited after May 2019 also pay only $160.

DEADLINE for regular registration and full payment of $200 is June 15. If your plans change, request a cancellation by June 15 to receive a full refund. After June 15, a $25 cancellation fee may apply.

The registration and scholarship application forms are also posted on the Teacher Circle group on Facebook.
