Our Canadian cousins on their way to the GBs
With both the Great Britain and All Ireland Championships taking place later this month, we welcome our friends from the Goggin-Carroll School of Dance in Toronto, Canada. These dancers will be working hard alongside McGL dancers at workshops.
Thank you to all who attended our free workshop in Essex this weekend. It was great to see so many dancers of all levels showing their enthusiasm! We hope you enjoyed it despite the HARD work!
Push yourselves to the limit!
Point those toes!

McGL Dancers Pre-Montreal World Championships
So, the McGahan Lees Open Feis is over for another year – it was a brilliant, busy weekend with fabulous competitions and an amazing standard of dancing. Important for many, it provided a great opportunity for a final stage practice before the World Championships in Montreal.
These lovely McGahan Lees dancers will be there, flying the flag for McGL and SE England.
