Thank you for joining Jackson Irish Dancers. Individual memberships are $15 per year; family memberships are $25 per year. Our membership year is September 1 to the following August 31. Thus, if you join JID after March 1 of any calendar year, dues are pro-rated to $7.50 for individuals, or $12.50 for families, for a membership for the remaining part of the membership year.

Members of JID need not be Jackson residents, and need not be dancers; all that is required for membership is that you have an interest in learning, performing, or supporting Irish dance and the activities of JID. Our performance group and board of directors are selected from among the membership, and members receive discounted admission to JID events and classes wherever possible, as well as other benefits. Most importantly, your membership dues help us pay operating expenses, bring visiting instructors to teach classes and workshops, and support local events like the Mostly Monthly Céilí Series and CelticFest Mississippi.

To join JID, complete the form below and click SUBMIT. Note that you are also required to complete a release form (if joining online, you will be asked to accept the terms of the release form as part of the registration process). You will be redirected to a payment page following the submission of the membership registration form. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, and thank you for your support!
