Welcome to the McGahan Lees Irish Dance Academy. Our fully qualified and registered teachers run classes all over the south of England.


This site is intended for Irish dancers all over the world - from raw beginners to world championship contenders. Family and friends of dancers, and anyone thinking of starting Irish dancing lessons, should also find it of great interest - especially the beginners area. Have a good look round!


[P.S. If you're wondering about our motto "Mol An Óige Agus Tiocfaidh Sí", it's an Irish phrase that means "Praise the young and they will blossom".]
