The Magic of McGing

2017: A Year in Review

The McGing School of Irish Dance offers Irish Dance classes in a nurturing environment where thousands of students have discovered their passion since 1977. From our humble beginning the McGing Irish Dancers have grown to become a household name in the city of Cincinnati and are widely recognized around the Greater Cincinnati area and beyond.

The McGing Irish Dancers' rich history has allowed McGing to become so much more than an Irish dancing school. We pride ourselves on being an internationally renowned program that gives children self-confidence, poise, and a fit body and mind both on and off the dance floor. McGing is a family friendly school where your child will learn the skill of Irish Dance while building character, having fun and developing lifelong friendships.

McGing Irish Dance classes are taught to children and adults of all ages with an emphasis on individual attention. Our teaching staff ranges from school teachers to lawyers and from World Champion Irish Dancers to dancers in Lord of the Dance. The McGing School of Irish Dance is a member of An Coimisiun le Rinci Galeacha (CLRG), the governing body of Irish Dance, and our main instructors are all certified teachers and adjudicators within the organization.

On a competitive level the McGing Irish Dancers have produced two World Champion Solo Dancers and a World Champion Team, which made them the first school in North America to have a Female, Male and Team World Champion and ranks them as one of the most prestigious dancing programs in the world. On a performance level the McGing Irish Dancers have had the honor to perform in Hollywood for the late great Gene Kelly, danced in the Soviet Union, and toured with the Cincinnati Pops. The McGing Irish Dancers are most proud, however, of their local ties to Cincinnati’s hospitals, charities and schools.
