2022/2023 REGISTRATION DETAILS
Croatoan welcomes you to the 2022/2023 season! We are excited to once again play tambura and dance kolo together. This year, we hope to return to a more normal routine, including regular in-person classes. This page includes registration details, eligibility, participant expectations, and the registration form.
Registration for the 2022/2023 season opens on August 14th, 2022, for both kolo and tambura. The deadline for registrations is September 10th, 2022. Registration takes place fully online.
Registration opens Sunday, August 14 and runs until Saturday, September 10.
At this time, registration is available for in-person kolo and tambura classes for all ages.
You may notice that the registration period begins and ends earlier than in previous years. This is so we know the sizes and composition of the performing groups in advance of the first class.
We encourage everyone to register as soon as possible, even if you are unsure. This helps us determine interest and make the necessary preparations for a prompt start to the season.
COVID-19 and the Safety of Participants
The safety of participants and teachers is our first priority. We fully anticipate a return to in-person kolo and tambura classes in September, however, we will follow any new public health measures that are implemented. This could mean that program delivery (in-person, online, hybrid) may be modified.
While most public health measures are currently lifted, we remind everyone to stay “COVID wise.” If you feel unwell, stay home, and inform your teacher.
