Blackpool 2009

It's been a full-on week with Production meetings and continuing rehearsals for my Irish charity show, which is now fast approaching, just two weeks to go!

I choreographed a new Intermediate dance to The Thing About You by Chloe Agnew for Big Dave's 60th birthday celebrations in Newcastle.

Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather.

I had a great day in Aberdeen with Elma Robertson. It was lovely to see everyone in Scotland and Janne travelled over from Spain.

The dances I taught were If You Dare, I'll Be There, Save Me Tonight, Familiar and Beautiful Flames.

It was also lovely to see Calico, who played in the evening. Thank you to everyone for supporting Elma. There are some photos in the Photo Gallery.

Thank you to Fred & Aurelie Chabbat for inviting me back to Peypin. It was so lovely to see everyone again and meet new people, it was a great day.

Thank you to everyone who supported the event, some I know travelled quite a distance to see me, this was much appreciated. Please see my Videos page for a video showing extracts from this event, which gives me many lovely memories.

I had a lovely day with Mat at his event in Edington, Somerset. Amongst the dances I taught were mine & Gary's Beautiful Flames & I'll Be There, which were both very well received.

Thank you Mat and to everyone who came along and supported Mat, it was lovely to see you all. There are some photos in the Photo Gallery and some videos on the Videos page.

My Irish dancers, Celtica and I are proud to present our 2018 Charity show at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry on 13/14 July. This is our 8th show, which gives everyone in the academy, aged 3 to 40+, a chance to show off their talents. We are proud to have raised over £40,000 for various charities.

Imaginative choreography and dazzling costumes combine Irish dance & music to make a fantastic evening of entertainment! We would love to see you if you are able to come along and support us. You may Book Online here.

Please bear with me for a couple of weeks for my new Easy Intermediate dance If You Dare to Dare by Gary Barlow as I need this dance for events at which I am teaching over the next few events in June.

I had a wonderful weekend with Joelle and dancers in La Rochelle, France. Thank you to Joelle for inviting me and also to all her friends - Gaby, Terese, Brigette, Veronique and Josephine - for helping to look after me so well. Thank you for making me so welcome, the beautiful chocolate cake and the very kind gifts given to not just me, but for my children too. I was overwhelmed.

On Friday we had an Irish dance technique workshop and social, which was a lot of fun. Dances I taught this weekend were: Celtic Duo, What I Miss Most, Tightrope, Familiar and my new easy Intermediate dance, If You Dare, to Dare by Gary Barlow and the cast of The Girls. Sorry, I won’t be releasing this dance for another couple of weeks as it is needed for events in June.

As you all know prior to going to Cyprus, I was working with Gary O'Reilly with our weekend in Enniscrone, Sligo. Thank you to everyone who came from the North & South of England and to those who travelled over from Germany - it was lovely to see you all.

We had a great time in Cyprus on the Club Dance Holidays & Maggie G International Linedance holiday at the 4-star Athena Beach Hotel in Paphos. I am so proud to have had dancers from so many different countries: Austria, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Northern Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

The Athena Beach is a beautiful hotel right on the beach and the food, hotel service and facilities were amazing. The weather was great with temperatures hitting 29 degrees! However, we were busy with lots of workshops teaching my latest dances, Familiar, Celtic Duo, No Apology, Tightrope, Capital Letters and another brand new easy Intermediate called "If You Dare" to the track Dare by Gary Barlow and the cast of The Girls.

The fun loving Jamie Barnfield was with us and taught several dances including a great new Intermediate nightclub called If It's Meant to Be. I have posted a video on my public Facebook, but do check out this great dance.

Gary O'Reilly arrived later in the week and dances taught included his new Intermediate dance Vanotek Cha and our new Advanced dance Beautiful Flames that we have jointly choreographed.

Thank you to Gary, Jamie & Anja for all their hard work in making my dance holiday with Club Dance Holidays in Cyprus such a fabulous fun week. We really did have a fantastic time, with fabulous weather & great dancing.

Our party night last Friday had a theme of anything beginning with M, well done to everyone for their fabulous costumes. Also well done to all the men who took part in showtime, you were all fabulous. There are photos from this great week in my Photo Album and more on my public Facebook.

Our next holiday is at the lovely Hotel AR Diamante Beach and Spa in Calpe. This is a fabulous dance venue in a great location and close to the beach.

If you would like to join us full details can be found at the Club Dance Holidays website. Thank you once again to the wonderful Anja, our ever present Club Dance Holidays rep for all her help during our Cyprus holiday.
