The McGing School of Irish Dance, under the direction of its founder and artistic director Mary McGing, has been in existence for 28 years. From its humble beginnings with 28 dancers, the school has established a rich history in the city of Cincinnati and is widely recognized around the world. Our dancers have performed in Hollywood for the late great Gene Kelly, danced in the Soviet Union, and toured with the Cincinnati Pops. The McGing dancers are most proud, however, of their local ties to Cincinnati’s hospitals, charities and schools. The list of local performances goes on and on. Another important part of our dancing is the competing. McGing dancers have a reputation of exuberating grace and power at the same time.
These qualities propel them to be champions in Local, Regional, National and World Irish dance competitions. The Irish dance experience at our school is unique to each student. McGing dancers create their own experience, whether they are most interested in Irish culture wearing a pretty dress or training for competition. Regardless of the reason for dancing each dancer is treated as an individual and taught with the same enthusiasm and love of Irish dance evident in each one of our teachers.
