Maggie G - News


Blackpool 2009

CD7 2021

Unfortunately Gary was unable to do the workshop in Somerton due to the pandemic. So I stood in and became Maggie O'Reilly for the day 😂 😂

Gary was really disappointed not to be able to come, we all missed you Gary 💚

We had a very busy day and everyone worked so hard. I taught Gary's dances:
Be Kind To Me
And I Say
Sexy Eyes
And a new one choreographed by us both:
Here We Go

I also taught my new Beginner dance Looking Up, now released, and recapped Blindsided and Dance Before You Leave Me.

Thank you so much to Matt and Rod, it was great fun with lots of laughs. Thank you to everyone who came it was so good to be dancing with you all.
Stay safe.
Love Maggie, or should I say Maggie O'Reilly 💚 💚


I have loved all my on-line classes and I start a new on-line class on Thursday 2 September, 18:30-20:30 UK time. These classes are once a week for 5 weeks, with a social night on the last Thursday. For more details, please see the Classes page.

I hope you will come and join me learning new and old dances 💚 ☘️ 💚


World Dance Masters !!! What an amazing event at the beautiful Winter Gardens in Blackpool. Thank you so much to Nicola, Sam and Conor for inviting me and for organising such a great event along with the WDM team 💚

It was such an honour to MC in the Empress Ballroom. Big Dave you are a fantastic DJ and it was a pleasure working with you as always 💚

I taught 3 dances:
Dance Before You Leave Me
Lonely Hearts
Bad Habits

I also had great fun in the Arena working alongside the lovely Michelle Risley, Jamie Barnfield, Cathy Hodgson and Heather Barton. Also great to see Dee Musk and Niki too. I taught:
Fields of Athenry
Looking Up

The show was spectacular and I was so happy to be part of it. Practising with Michelle, Jamie, Heather and Lauren was so funny, we laughed so much 😂 💚

Thank you to Pauline who as always looked after us all so well. 💚

It was so good to meet up with so many people, special mention to Fred, Shane, Fiona and Roy. Jen, your performance was stunning. It was so special to be part of this event and dance with everyone there and those online. 💚

Lots of love to everyone, take care, hope to see you all again soon.

Love Maggie 💚💚

I had such a great day in Somerton. Thank you so much to Matt and Rod for inviting me.

I really enjoyed teaching some of my new dances, Dance Before You Leave Me, Lonely Hearts and mine and Gary's new dance Bad Habits.

It was so nice to be dancing some of my older dances with all of you. Thank you so much to all of you who came.

I loved my Cheesy Puff mug, thank you so much. Also thank you to Rosie and Nicola for feeding me. I hope to be dancing with you all again soon.

💚💚 Love Maggie 💚💚


Another great weekend, this time in Newcastle. Thank you to Big Dave and Pauline for getting everything ready for us, you worked so hard to make it special for us all. It was great to be dancing along side people again and to be teaching with Dee and Hayley.

I taught my new dances Dance Before You Leave Me and Lonely Hearts and also mine and Gary's dance Bad Habits. We will be teaching Bad Habits at Celtic Duo 7.0 online on 17th July.

Thank you to everyone who joined us in Newcastle, we had a great time.
💚💚💚 Love Maggie 💚💚💚


What an amazing weekend we had in Bournemouth. We followed all the Covid restrictions but it didn't stop us dancing and having a great time.

Thank you to Big Dave and Pauline, Dee Musk and Nicky from Calico, what a team we made. Thank you so much to everyone who joined us, it was so nice to be dancing with you all.

I taught my 2 new dances Dance Before You Leave Me and Lonely Hearts, which are now released. I also went through Fields of Athenry and Beautiful Madness. I hope you enjoy the new dances.

Take care everyone.
💚💚💚 Love Maggie xxx 💚💚💚

I just want to say a massive thank you for all the lovely messages I have received over the last six months. I truly miss not being able to travel and seeing everyone on the events I was booked on for this year. I love to teach and always enjoy catching up with everyone personally.

Also a massive thank you to everyone who comes to see me in my kitchen online every week. Your support is very much appreciated. It is a busy household, "Beautiful Madness", but I really enjoy dancing with you all in my kitchen every week. It has been a great way of keeping in touch and I am really looking forward to dancing with you again online.

In the meantime, please keep safe everybody until we can one day meet again on the dance floor.
