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, which is now released, and Lonely Hearts. I also went through Fields of Athenry and Beautiful Madness. I hope you enjoy the new dances.

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


Gary & I are looking forward to sharing our brand new dance to Ed Sheeran's epic new track "Bad Habits".

We are looking forward to dancing with you all also on July 17th @ "CELTIC DUO 7" 💚 ☘️


I have loved all my on-line classes and I started a new on-line class on Thursday 27 May, 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 💚 ☘️ 💚


I went back to my Monday & Wednesday line dance classes when restrictions were relaxed in May - it was so good to be back at Holy Family. If anyone is interested in line dance classes in Coventry please let me know. 💚


Gary & I have released our new high-level Beginner dance, Make That Call, which we taught on our Celtic Duo 6.0 event. This dance was choreographed in conjunction with Dial A Dancer, reaching out to all dancers, who are on their own or struggling during these difficult times.

If you know of anyone who would appreciate a call, please do contact dialalinedancer@gmail.com.


☘️ Massive thank you to Big Dave & Pauline Baycroft for all the fantastic Southport Memories on Saturday 27 March. It was a great night on-line reminiscing back to the good old days at Pontins right up to the fun days at the Prince of Wales hotel 🥳 💚

Also big thanks to our fantastic special choreographer/instructor guests, Steve Healy, Roy Verdonk, Jose Miguel, Craig Bennett, Dee Musk & Gary O'Reilly ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️


☘️ FIELDS OF ATHENRY ☘️

To celebrate St.Patricks Day tomorrow, Gary & I have choreographed a BRAND NEW dance to share with you all. We were lucky enough (excuse the pun) 😂 to find a great remixed and upbeat version of the classic "Fields Of Athenry" and we love it. We hope you will enjoy teaching & dancing our new dance to your dancers this week to celebrate everything Irish 💚

We taught "Fields Of Athenry" for the first time on Saturday during our Celtic Duo 6.0 live event. Thank you so much to everyone that joined us for a fun-filled evening of music, song, dance & fun. A big THANK YOU to Michelle Risley for joining us to judge the "QUEEN OF IRELAND" contest which sadly saw me lose the crown to the new "Queen Of Ireland" Assumpta Murphy 😂

Stay safe, keep dancing & be kind... x


😍 I am very excited to announce that Gary & I have choreographed a BRAND NEW BEGINNER level line dance called "Make That Call", to the lovely country track "Reach Out" featuring a host of Irish Country Stars! We are looking forward to teaching it at Celtic Duo 6.0, which is going to be a great evening of workshops, social dancing and lots of fun. We both love the track & the lyrics are so poignant especially at this time! 😍

Ironically, the track has come at the perfect time, as I have just launched a new and exciting initiative 💚

It's called Dial A Dancer. Please see my Home page for details. 📱

Stay safe,
Maggie 😍


☘️ ☘️ Thank you so, so much to everyone who joined the CBA After Party social at the end of February ☘️ ☘️

There were so many dances we couldn't show at the Crystal Boot Awards so it was great to show all the videos and have another great night.

Thank you so much to all the instructors and choreographers, who provided their videos back in January.

Gary, Grace & I had a great time hosting the evening and are thrilled that £1200 was raised. Betty, Gary, Grace & I are overwhelmed with so many lovely text & emails from people saying how much they enjoyed the evening, "a great mix of dances and even had sore feet". We are so pleased you all enjoyed it, at the same time raising funds for the fabulous LDF. Thank you so much 💚💚

💎 💎 CRYSTAL BOOT AWARDS 💎 💎

I was so honoured to have been asked to be part of the 25th Annual Crystal Boot Awards this year which was just wonderful. It was so lovely to see so many beautiful memories and look back on the special memories and special friends who have made the awards what they are today. A massive thank you to Betty for working so so hard putting all this together and to Kelly for broadcasting the show to all our homes. It was lovely to see Betty & Steve together presenting the awards.

This year I was fortunate enough to be able to teach a Brand New Dance with Gary. Gary & I have not had the opportunity before to teach together at the awards so this year was extra special for us both. We taught our Brand New dance "Blindsided" and are thrilled with the response from the dancers. Thank you so much to Margaret Hains for sharing this gorgeous music with us. Gary & I adore it 💚
For Blindsided script, please see the Latest Dances page.

I enjoyed all the workshops and look forward to sharing them in the coming weeks online. It was so nice to see the wonderful Blaire teaching her new little dance. She is a star.

I was very proud to see Celtica perform. It brought back many great memories for me seeing them online. Thank you Betty for including Celtica.

Gary & I are over the moon to have won Intermediate Dance of the Year with "Faithful Soul", Advanced Dance of the Year with "All I Need To Know" and overall Dance of the Year with "Faithful Soul". We cannot thank everyone enough who voted for our dances and in particular we are thrilled to have won with "Faithful Soul" two years running. We just can't believe it.

"Faithful Soul" is a haunting track & we know it has touched so many hearts and we look forward to dancing it with you all for many years to come. Winning with "Faithful Soul" has been very bittersweet as it brings back great memories and equally very sad memories of losing our lovely Padraig ❤️

I am very proud of Gary on winning Male Personality again this year. He deserves every success for all he has done all year. Congratulations to each and every nominee and winner. You are all superstars.

As a member of the Hall of Fame, it was lovely to see Big Dave welcome our new inductee Chris Watson from Australia. This is a very special recognition of someone's work and I know that Chris & his family will be so proud of him.

I would like to thank all of those who have joined me online in 2020 and also those who have continued to support Gary & I's Celtic Duo Live events. A special mention to Debbie, Keeley & my son Sean for all your support online over the last 10 months.

Thank you so much Betty for a truly amazing weekend. You have reminded us all of how connected we can all be in the Linedance world even if we are not physically together.

Maggie ☘️


Gary & I were very excited and honoured to be teaching at the CBA on the Sunday morning, where we launched a brand new beautiful waltz. Thank you to Margaret for suggesting the music.

We've been teaching together online during lockdown in our Celtic Duo events and were thrilled to be teaching for the first time together at the Awards.

I feel very honoured to have taught at the CBA over the years and also performing with my Irish dancers, Celtica.

We have many wonderful memories of our performances during the Saturday evening shows and are grateful to Betty for giving us the opportunity to perform. We were thrilled that despite Betty's very busy schedule she and her husband, Mike, were able to join us at our Charity Show in 2018 at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. 💚 💚


☘️ A Man Is In Love ☘️

I am thrilled that Gary & I's dance "A Man Is In Love" has been nominated in the Wild Card section of this year's Crystal Boot Awards.

This song is very special to me as it was played on John & I's wedding video many moons ago. My sister Annette chose the music for our wedding video and I recalled the track when Gary & I were looking for new music for our Celtic Duo 2.0. I sent the track to Gary and he loved it as much as I do 💚

We are so pleased that so many dancers are enjoying it especially during these difficult times.

Thank you all for taking the time to vote and nominate our dance!


Due to the national lockdown in England, I will be continuing with my 2-hour on-line classes on both Tuesdays & Thursdays. Everyone welcome!


☘️ CRYSTAL BOOT AWARDS ☘️

I am so excited for the Crystal Boot Awards this January. The CBA online event will be like no other. Betty has been working tirelessly to bring you the event of the year. The CBA will celebrate everything new and old about linedance. You do not want to miss it.

Thank you so much for teaching & dancing Gary & I's dances this past year. It has been a hectic but very enjoyable time online & a huge learning curve for me.

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.
