TIDO accepts donations, and we use them for:


  • Hosting the American Pride Feis & Music City Feis which helps to advance Irish culture and visibility of SAID in both Middle Tennessee and the Irish dancing community

  • Heighten awareness of Irish culture by supporting the SAID Performance Troupe 

  • Offer parties, movie nights and gatherings for the dancers and their families to build community; we want each dancer and their family to feel a part of the bigger whole community of dancers at SAID

  • Extra gifts like tshirts, pillowcases, or beach towels for those dancers attending majors.  Even if your dancer isn’t there yet, it’s likely they will be!

  • Support SAID’s needs where we are able!  Because we must are a non-profit, we can’t use donated funds for some things but prioritizing what we are able to support is all with your dancer in mind.
