What is the Mini McGing Program?
We are happy to offer a (pre)beginner class for dancers ages 3-4! This 30-minute class is perfectly designed for your preschooler who wants to dance but is too young for our Youth Beginner Program and is a great springboard into our Youth Beginner Classes. Classes will focus on coordination, balance, mobility & introduction to Irish Dance technique.

The McGing Irish Dancers have been a household name in Cincinnati for over 40 years! We pride ourselves in being an internationally renowned program that gives children self-confidence, poise and a fit body & mind both on and off the dance floor. Our award winning, professional instructors are role models who inspire the best in every child, all the while fostering a family-like atmosphere for dancers and families. 

After learning the beginning steps of Irish Dance, McGing students have two programs to choose from. The first being recreational where students come to learn once a week. The second is for the more serious dancer where classes meet several times a week and focus on more technical dance training. This allows each dancer to discover the joy of dance. The McGing Irish Dancers provide top-notch instruction and a positive, fun environment for each and every dancer regardless of whichever program your dancer chooses.

In your dancer’s beginner year they will be able participate in events such as the Beginner Recital, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Ceili (McGing’s Annual “Gala” – we like to refer to it as a Wedding …just without the Bride & Groom).

In future years your dancer will be able to participate in events such as Christmas in Killarney (McGing’s Annual Recital), the Celtic Festival, the Cincinnati Feis (a dance competition held in early November that McGing hosts), Irish Heritage Night with the Cincinnati Reds (McGing performs on the field before and after the game) and so much more! 

The McGing Dance Year for Beginners follows a typical school calendar with classes beginning the week of Labor Day (September 2023) and running through mid-late May (May 2024) with breaks coinciding with holidays, etc. Tuition for Beginners is $175/session. Sessions are approximately 3-months in length with three (3) sessions per year: Fall, Winter & Spring.
