Welcome to the wonderful world of Irish dancing with the Southern Academy of Irish Dance! SAID-VA was created through the August 2014 merger of the Aoibhneas an Rince Irish Dancers, in residence in northern Virginia since 1999, and the Southern Academy of Irish Dance, based in Nashville, Tennessee. We have 3 certified Irish dance teachers in Virginia and 2 in Tennessee, all with different backgrounds, giving our school diversity and experience in all areas of dance, including team and solo competition, exercise, and sharing the love of the tradition and culture of Irish dance. We each share the passion of teaching and are committed to the education and success of every student. Our lives have been influenced by many great teachers and dancers and we are excited to pass on our knowledge to our dancers.
