All About McGonagle

The McGonagle School of Irish Dance was founded in 1993 by Brenda Hamilton Coleman T.C.R.G. and was the first Irish dance school to offer lessons in NH. The school is now run by Ashlyn Rockwell Muse, TCRG and Mrs. Coleman. Registered with An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha, McGonagle offers classes in traditional competitive Irish dance to children ages 3 and up through adult. Our dancers compete successfully at the regional, national, and world level, and have performed across the New England Region for numerous audiences, including the NH and MA governors.


Earned Success

Our students are prepared to compete their best at any level of competition, from pre-beginner through championship. Dancers not only learn discipline and commitment, but also make memories that will last a lifetime.

Beginner Level for all Ages

Classes are offered for children and adults of any age. Our Wee Folk class is designed for 3-4 year olds, and Beginner lessons are open to those 5 years and older. Students are exposed to new friends and traditions in a supportive, safe environment while getting lots of exercise!


Our Dance Family

Led by a dedicated team of instructors, McGonagle is a true dance family. Our dancers participate in dance outs, bus trips to competitions, and other school activities to build not only their dance relationship, but their friendships as well. If you are interested in joining us or learning more, we are happy to answer any questions.
