International Line Dance Choreographer

Portugal 2015


Hi! I'm Margaret Gallagher, known professionally as Maggie G. I choreograph line dances and teach at classes in Coventry and at events, both nationally and internationally. Why not join me in my Coventry classes or on a line dance weekend or holiday abroad? You will find links on this page to my classes and all my latest news, dances, holidays and weekend events.

I am also well known for my Irish dancing and dance troupes from my Celtica Academy Irish Dance School. My Irish dance classes are held weekly in the Coventry area.

Line Dancing

My many dances cover a wide range of styles and dance levels from Absolute Beginner to Advanced. I often introduce a new dance at events. The scripts for all my dances are on this official website. (For French translations of these scripts, please see the Dances A-Z Page.) I hope you enjoy them and have fun on the dance floor - to be sure, to be sure!!

Line Dance Classes

My line dance classes in Coventry, which I started over 20 years ago, cover all dance levels from Absolute Beginner to Advanced. If you have never tried this fun type of dancing, then you will be most welcome at my Monday evening class. No partner is needed and it is a great way to socialise and make new friends. For more details, please see the Classes page.

Irish Dance Classes

My Irish dance classes, opened in 1990, are held in Allesley and Coventry and cater for all age ranges starting with the very young. These classes are part of my Celtica Academy Irish Dance School, with pupils aged 4 upwards. For more details, please see the Irish Dance Classes page and my Celtica Contacts page.

Celtica Academy

My Celtica Academy Irish dance troupes are trained in my Coventry-based Celtica Academy Irish Dance School and we give enjoyment performing at dance events nationally and internationally. We are well known for our local fundraising and support charity events when we can. We are proud to host a Charity Show every two years at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry.

All my latest Celtica Academy news, classes, pictures and videos can be read on my Celtica Academy of Irish Dance Facebook, which is publicly readable.

Line Dance News

Some latest news highlights are shown on this page, but my most up-to-date line dance news can be found on my publicly-readable Facebook. News from my dance tours can also be found on my News page. I hope you find the information of interest.


If you would like to book me for your event, please email your enquiry - see Contact Us page for details.

Happy dancing!

Love, Maggie.
