2019 – 2020 Registration
The first dancing practice will be on Tuesday, September 24, at 7:00 PM.
Online registration for Boiseko Gazteak is now live! It will be accessible until Tuesday, September 17. You may also register in person on September 17 at 7:00 PM at the Basque Center. Whether you register online or not, you will need to come to the Basque Center that evening if you need to have your children measured for costumes, have costumes altered, or purchase used costumes, shoes, and other costume accessories. This evening will also be an opportunity to sell your used costume to another parent (if you are selling a costume, please plan to arrive early so that the costume pieces can be priced prior to registration).
In order to dance with Boiseko Gazteak, Parents/Guardians (NOT Grandparents) must be members of Euzkaldunak. If you are not currently a member of Euzkaldunak, you may become a member by contacting Patty Gabica Haas ([email protected]). You may also register for Euzkaldunak during the Boiseko Gazteak registration on the evening of September 17.

Teachers & Musicians Wanted:
The board is also looking for teaching volunteers to assist the directors for each age group. This program cannot continue without the people who are committed to teaching every Tuesday night for nine weeks before Christmas and nine weeks after Christmas. Teaching is also a great opportunity for current high school kids to earn volunteer hours. Please think about joining the crew that continues to pass on our culture to these wonderful kids year after year. If you are interested, please contact Johnny Aldape (208.761.2121 or [email protected]).
Similarly, we are also looking for musicians (txistu, accordion, & tambourine) to provide live music during practices and performances. If you are interested, please contact Nikki Totorica (208.867.2175 or [email protected]).
