As the global pandemic continues and its effects ripple through our communities, we have been in constant contact with our venue, Gaylord Opryland, as well as overflow properties regarding the NAIDC. Throughout our discussions, our primary concern has been, and will continue to be, the health and safety of our Irish dance community. You are our top priority! 

We understand the May 1st NAIDC opening entry date is fast approaching. Please sit tight as we continue our conversations to make the most informed decision possible. Look for additional updates in the upcoming week!
