It offers classes for children aged from four upwards across a range of nights. We believe Irish Dancing is a hobby and we aim to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all our pupils. <br /><br />Celtica Academy is suitable for those that wish to attend just once a week as we do not enter our pupils in competition. Our classes enable pupils to gain confidence, make new friends, have fun and get fit at the same time as learning and improving technical ability. <br /><br />We provide the thrill of on stage performance at Coventry's Belgrade Theatre every other year. This opportunity is open to every child and is staged at a professional level. Our 2016 show was a huge success and we raised over 7500 for various charities! <br /><br />Our senior troupe performs both locally and internationally. We are well known for our local fundraising and are proud to say our current total is in excess of 40,000. </p> <p class="text-para">I am also known professionally in the line dancing world as Maggie G, both nationally and internationally. During my line dance tours and at events, I give demonstrations of Irish dancing when requested. </p> <p class="text-para">You will find links on this page to all my Celtica Academy Irish dance classes, news and events. <br /> </p> <p class="text-title-center">Irish Dance Classes</p> <p class="text-para">My Irish dance classes opened in 1990 and are held in Coventry and Allesley. These cater for all age ranges from the very young. These classes are part of my Celtica Academy Irish Dance School. Fun classes for our youngest pupils include those aged 4. You or your children will be made most welcome at our classes. For more details, please see the <a href="celticaclasses.htm" title="Irish Classes Page">Irish Classes page</a>. </p> <p class="text-title-center">Celtica Academy Dance Troupes</p> <p class="text-para"> 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. Countries in which we have performed include Monaco, France, Holland, Spain and Ireland. <br /><br />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.</p> <p class="text-title-center"> <a href="Images/Coventry2016/Coventry16-187.jpg" title="Photo 1 Coventry 2016"><img class="thumb ld133" src="Images/Coventry2016/Thumbs/Coventry16t-187.jpg" alt="Photo 1"/></a> <a href="Images/Coventry2014/Coventry14-273.jpg" title="Photo 2 Coventry 2014"><img class="thumb ld133" src="Images/Coventry2014/Thumbs/Coventry14t-273.jpg" alt="Photo 2"/></a> </p> </div> </div> <!-- Content Section - Second Column--> <div id="columns2-2"> <div class="text-block"> <div class="intro2 text-title-center"> <a href="Images/Southport2017/Southport17-166.jpg"><img class="thumb pt133" src="Images/Southport2017/Thumbs/Southport17t-166.jpg" title="Southport 2017 Photo" alt="Southport 2017 Photo" /></a> <br /> </div> <a id="celticanews" name="celticanews"></a> <br /><div class="message-board"> <p class="text-title-center">Event News</p> <p class="text-para">Our next Charity Show at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry, will be held in 2018.
