Thank you so much to everyone who has joined my online class. I am overwhelmed with all the fantastic comments and so pleased everyone enjoyed it. It was a little nerve racking for me as I've never done this before.

Anyone is still welcome to join (see the Classes page). I'll be online on Tuesdays and Thursdays and previous classes are available to view on the group.

Keep safe everybody and follow the government guidelines. xx

A big thank you Rachael McEnaney for organising the Digital Dance Weekend. It was such a wonderful event, great teachers and dances and I really enjoyed teaching my Intermediate dance, Tear Me Down. Thank you to Jessie Chan & Cody Flowers for all their help and support.

It was with great sadness that I had to make the difficult decision to cancel my plans to travel to Benidorm, Spain, to dance with the fantastic Andrea Atkinson.

With the COVID-19 virus spreading rapidly and the number of cases increasing hour-by-hour and day-by-day in Europe, and with my three children and elderly father in mind, I felt that this was the best decision for me at this time.

I wished Andrea all the very best for her event and I was truly gutted that I had to make this difficult decision not to travel and to miss seeing all my line dance friends.

Stay safe everyone and take care of each other. Lots of love, Maggie G x

WOW WOW WOW! What an amazing time John, I and the boys had in Monaco. We loved visiting the palace & casino and the boys were so thrilled to see all the Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Also, Jean-Claude kindly took us up the mountain to see the beautiful view.

A massive thank you to Mayflower Country Club, Jean-Claude, Nelly, Melanie and DJ Pierre for such a wonderful event in a beautiful venue celebrating the club's 10-year anniversary. Also, special thanks to all the dancers for supporting the event.

I was very proud of the boys, who danced with me and played their Irish instruments. The dances I taught were Faithful Soul, Tear Me Down, Pretty Girl, Wintergreen and Pocket of Hearts.

I also taught a Beginner dance, the Great Unknown, choreographed especially for the club. It is to a track of the same name by X Ambassadors and from the film The Call of the Wild. Mayflower Country Club you are a very special club close to my heart. x

I had such an amazing time with Patrick & Barbara at The Pawnee's Club in La Couronne, France, celebrating their 10-year anniversary. It was nice to see all the local instructors, Joelle, Martine & Noria. The standard of dancers was brilliant.

The dances I taught were Faithful Soul, Wintergreen, Keep Young, Pretty Girl, React and Pocket of Hearts.

It was a great evening dancing all the old Maggie G classics, my feet are sore today lol. Thank you to everyone who supported the event.

I had a lovely weekend up north with Tracey Keqa in Leeds and then down south with Janis Budgen in Southampton. It was really lovely to catch up with lots of dancers.

Special thanks to Tracey & Janis and to all who supported their events.

The dances I taught in Leeds were Love You Now, React, Keep Young, Faithful Soul, Wintergreen & Pocket of Hearts. In Southampton I taught React, Tear Me Down, Love You Now & Keep Young.

Thank you to Dave and Pauline Baycroft for an awesome weekend at the Aberavon Hotel, Port Talbot. Special thanks to you both for the lovely cake you surprised me with for Faithful Soul winning Intermediate and Dance of the Year. It was a great fun weekend and lovely to see everyone supporting the event.

The dances I taught were React, a new Intermediate from myself and Gary O'Reilly to The Pussycat Dolls, my new Intermediate Tear Me Down, Keep Young (LDF dance), my new Improver Love You Now and a new Improver choreographed with Gary, Pretty Girl.

A massive thank you to Cicadance in France for inviting me back again this year. It was a fantastic day and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as me. I have been going to this special club for around 15 years and they are always so kind to me. It was lovely to see you all again.

Thank you to Monique, Marie-Paul, Andre & Morgan who really looked after me and to all the dancers for supporting the event. Thank you to the Irish Celtic band, Dulcimer, who were really good and played great music. Special thanks to Annik & Denise for travelling to see me again, it was great to see you.

The dances I taught were Wintergreen, Faithful Soul, the LDF dance Keep Young, Pocket of Hearts, my new Improver Love You Now & Pretty Girl - a new Improver choreographed by myself and Gary.

I would also like to say a special thank you to Stephanie & Patrice, who were very helpful in getting me transferred on to an earlier flight to Paris as Air France cancelled my return flight.

The CBA was an amazing weekend and I still can't believe Faithful Soul won Intermediate Dance of the Year and even more so, Dance of the Year. Thank you so, so much to everyone who voted, Gary & I really do appreciate it.

Special thanks to Dave & Pauline Baycroft, Keeley, Sally & Mike, Audrey, Catherine, Gwen, Tracey, Roni, Janne, Jane Kenrick and Margaret Hains for all your continued support. Also, a massive thank you to my club in Coventry for all their support again this year.

Congratulations to Gary on his 5 awards, I am soooo proud of him.

Well done to Maddison too and to all the other winners. I was also immensely proud of Helen O'Malley, who received the Love of Dance award for all her wonderful charity work. Helen works so hard through the line dance world to raise lots of money for charity.

Thank you to Betty, Steve and all the team for all their hard work throughout the year and for making the CBA such a great event.

Finally, thank you for all your lovely comments, texts & emails re the LDF dance, Keep Young. Thank you to Keeley for suggesting the music, we are pleased you are enjoying the dance. The last six months have been very emotional, but after such great sadness, John & I have been overwhelmed with immense joy.
