About us

SAIDA (South American Irish Dance Association) is the Irish Dancing Association for An Coimisiún Le Rincí Gaelacha for countries located in South America (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Perú, Surinam, Uruguay and Venezuela).


After over 5 years in the drawing board, SAIDA is born in 2016 when six registered TCRG teachers belonging to Brasil, Argentina and Chile decided to get organized to further promote, develop and regulate Irish Dancing in the whole sub-continent of South America.


Our Executive standing committee works in a coordinated fashion towards the organization of events, workshops, exams and feiseanna, advocating a sense of community, trust and respect.
